Ascent Trampoline Park Blackpool to bring secondary school starters together from this weekend with special event

Home | Blackpool Gazette

A Blackpool trampoline park is putting on special “open day” events for various Fylde coast secondary school starters after many schools cancelled open days during lockdown.

 

Many Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde secondary schools were unable to put on their annual open days for new year seven school starters amid Covid restrictions and social distancing guidance.

But Ascent Trampoline Park in Cornford Road, Marton, hopes to rectify that with a series of special events to bring youngsters starting school together.

It has planned a series of “open day” events for a variety of Fylde coast schools, which will include team-bonding games, food and the chance to bounce into year seven having already met new friends.

A spokesman for Ascent said: “We understand how huge the transition from primary school to high school can be and understand it can be very daunting.
