The Royal Harbour


Exciting Army Day Event Engages Students at The Royal Harbour Academy

On 12th June, The Royal Harbour Academy were delighted to welcome the British Army to the school to deliver a 3 hour interactive Leadership Challenge Programme for students in Years 9, 10, and 12. The event offered an unparalleled opportunity to engage in teamwork and communication activities while honing their problem-solving skills in an enjoyable and interactive setting.

The event arranged by Headquarters South East in Aldershot and delivered by a team of serving personnel from the British Army’s high readiness Brigade, undertook a range of activities with our students which included a short brief about the British Army & careers followed by a chance to try out some physical battlefield challenges then some team and challenge activities to both enhance confidence and develop skills and team work.

All the students had a great time meeting with the Army personnel. The new confidence and mental and physical resilience skills they gained from the day will undoubtedly benefit them in the future.

Student comments included: 

"It was very fun. The men are strict, hard work. They made me get motivated! I really enjoyed it”, "It pushed me to my physical limits"

"It was very physical, people that don't enjoy things like this had a big shock. This was good to test yourself and even give you another idea for a job"

"Very leg aching but fun. I would do it again because I'm interested in joining the army".

The Royal Harbour Academy's Army Day was a resounding success, providing students with a memorable experience that fostered essential life skills in a fun and supportive environment. Through these engaging activities, students learned the importance of teamwork, communication, and problem-solving, all while gaining insight into military training and its applications.
