Another exciting visit to Blaen Wern Farm!
Just before we broke up for the half term, a small group of students and staff from Key Stage 4 and 6th Form went on a residential trip to Blaen Wern Farm in Wales. This was once again a resounding success with all returning safely, happy if a little tired.
The weather was not very kind to us this year but this didn’t put the students and staff off as they all eagerly took part in a range of activities which including a steam train ride to Devils Bridge, a trip to the beach at New Quay, swimming in the indoor pool, a karaoke disco evening and a hay wagon ride around the farm.
Each year, students from Key Stage 4 and the 6th Form take part in the residential trips to either Blaen Wern Farm or Atlantic College. Each destination is unique in its own right, where the students can enjoy time away from home and school with their friends.
Our residential visits are designed to reinforce the independent living and social skills that we place great emphasis on in Key Stage 4 and the 6th Form. Everyone had a fantastic time with many students opting to go back next year!
In the heart of the Welsh Countryside situated within the boundaries of a 160 Acre working farm lies the fruition of one man’s dream, to create a natural haven for the benefit of children that are seriously ill or have special needs
Built in 1988, the centre has provided holidays for thousands of people with health and physical problems, together with their families and carers.
