Residential Visits

Each year we organise a range of residential opportunities for our pupils.

Recently, these have included:

  • Sailing with the Ocean Youth Trust.
  • Skegness Childrens Holiday Centre.
  • Foreign residential visits as part of Erasmus (formally Comenius) Projects to Lithuania, Bulgaria, Greece, Finland, Turkey and France.
  • Lea Green Adventure Centre.
  • London Theatre trip.

We aim to offer all pupils some residential opportunities throughout their school career and try to match the opportunities to the  pupils needs as far as possible.

We use pupil premium and bursary funds to support pupils who need financial support to access activities.

HELPwill sailing

We need volunteer helpers and sponsorship to enable the sailing tip to run this year.

We need to raise £3500 to be able to take part and are asking for sponsors to donate £350  to sponsor a participant. If you know of any business, club, group or individual who may be able to help us please contact Katie Smith via the Office.

The provisional dates are 15th to 19th June 2015 if we can raise the money by then!!

Skegness Diaries Day 2 – Tuesday 12th July 2016

Hello, the children appear to be settling in well after their first night. For breakfast we had cereal and toast, then got ready for a morning trip to the farm we went on soft play first while it was raining and then went to see the animals. They all liked feeding the goats and seeing the farm machinery. We came back for lunch and had sandwiches, cheese & onion rolls and crisps, then watched a filmed and played in the sports hall. We had spaghetti bolognese with garlic bread for tea then had showers before going to the circus. They all had a brilliant time and was very excited, it was great watching a live human cannon ball, tight rope walking and acrobatics!
We returned back to the house for a hot chocolate, got our pjs on and headed to bed.

Skegness Diaries Day 3 –  Wednesday 13th July 2016

Morning everyone, we all enjoyed a lie in until at least 7am, everyone slept well. We got ourselves ready for breakfast at 8.30am, toast or cereal. Then we had time to play before going to the aquarium, whilst there we saw a zebra shark, jelly fish and nemo! We also had the chance to stroke a cockroache and a corn snake in critter corner.
After the aquarium we headed back to the house for a picnic lunch then off to butlins to enjoy the rides. The best was the carousel, dodgems and the animal train, we even managed to watch a bob the builder show, that was great.
When we got back to the house we had a chippy tea! Most of us had sausage & chips it was yummy followed by chocolate cake with cream. Then we decided to have a walk to the sea front to stretch our legs, we had a quick play on the beach then returned to the house for a shower, hot chocolate then bedtime.What a lovely busy day we have had, we’ve even had sunshine.
