London Trip - Educational Visit

An educational trip to London was organised and offered out to all pupils in base. It was an overwhelming success with pupils and staff indicating that they really enjoyed it and that they got a lot out of it. This has involved 40 of our pupils some of whom have never been to the capital. It had been an enormous undertaking and a huge thanks goes to CN and BL and everyone who pulled together to make it happen. It was simply brilliant to observe our young people meeting, travelling, sharing experiences etc. showing true resiliance and demonstrating how far they have come from their individual starting points with us.

Celebrating Success - News about past pupils!

A pupil MG, who attended the Louth group, has been in touch to pass on her thanks to the school as she has just been offered a place at Bristol University to study Criminology.

HB from the Lincoln base has been offered a place at Nottingham Trent University to study Music Production.

EB formerly of the Boston base is now a Case Support worker.

Well done everyone. News about past pupils is always the best news!

News about past pupils:

A pupil, CS, who attended the Lincoln base has been voted apprentice of the year at Lincoln College.

JJ from the Louth base is actively engaging in his placement.

KK, also from the Louth base, is successfully accessing his CLIP placement.

Kinema in The Woods School Trip - Ralph Breaks The Internet

We had a very successful cinema trip with over 70 pupils and staff in attendance.  Pupils and staff were treated to a showing of 'Ralph breaks the Internet', the sequel to 'Wreck It Ralph'.  Everyone, of all ages, really enjoyed the film, even though some of the oldies did not understand what half of it was about!  The pupils were amazing and represented themselves and the school perfectly.
