Yarrells Preparatory School in Upton, Dorset, tested its sea legs with an extra special trip on Condor Liberation.

Yarrells Preparatory School in Upton, Dorset, tested its sea legs on 16 March with an extra special trip on Condor Liberation. 35 pupils attended the day and were treated to an exclusive inside look at how the high-speed vessel operates.

The school arrived at the ferry port in Poole for a full safety briefing and, once suited and booted in high visibility jackets, the students were taken in groups to visit the Captain’s bridge for a full tour of the ship, to meet the crew and take part in arts and crafts activities.

Alicia Andrews, Executive Director - Commercial at Condor Ferries, said: “It’s been a delight to show Yarrells School the inner workings of Condor Liberation – the crew was very impressed by the amount of questions the pupils asked. Offering opportunities for the community to learn about sea travel is hugely important to Condor Ferries, as it’s a key part of Dorset’s coastal history and identity.

Andrew Roberts-Wray, Headteacher at Yarrells Prepatory School, added: “Our pupils had a wonderful day visiting Condor Ferries and were amazed by the size and power of the ship. Field trips which are interactive and outside of the usual routine are hugely important as they inspire our pupils and really inform our lessons and discussions in school. 

“You never know, we may have future Captains amongst our pupils, so partnering with Condor has been a brilliant way to show what life on the sea is like.”
