Isle of Wight Trip

An intrepid group of 18 of our learners arrived at little Canada on the Isle of Wight to take part in a packed programme of activities to test and challenge them.
The pupils were split in to two groups with one group building Jacobs ladder, this group of learners had to work together to reach the top.
The other group took part in the sensory trail and worked on their communication skills to overcome a range obstacles!
Then it was off for a pre dinner swim in the sea rewarded with a hearty meal of fish and chips!
And finally a good nights rest.

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
