In Activities Week, 60 year 10 students visited the clueQuest Escape Rooms in Islington, London. The escape rooms are themed on Mr. Q’s spy agency and participants take on the role of secret agents tasked with a variety of missions. For example, in one room, students must identify the double agent, prove that the evil Professor BlackSheep is behind the disappearance of fellow agents and achieve all of that before a security device detonates the agency’s entire facility.
We were impressed with the way students worked together, helping and encouraging each other to find clues, solve puzzles and ultimately escape from the rooms. There were a number of successfully completed missions and fortunately no one got locked in and left behind!
When students were not in the escape rooms, they were able to participate in Agent Training challenges and “choose your own adventure” table top games. It was a busy day which the students seemed to really enjoy and we look forward to visiting clueQuest again next year.
