Residential Trip to Exmoor

Students enjoyed their first residential trip of the year to Calvert Trust in Exmoor! Experienced Exmoor staff supported students to reach their full potential no matter what their level of ability. The activities participated in were fun and challenging building confidence and teamwork skills this included horse riding, abseiling, zip wires, cycling, crate stacking and more. After a busy day students and staff spent time relaxing in the hydrotherapy pools and sensory room. Evening entertainment was also provided with a visit from Exmoor Zoo and a disco which students especially loved. The trip was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone and the experience was one that will be remembered!

 

As a result of outstanding teaching, over time students make excellent progress and develop the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their goals.
