Everyone is very excited and is settling into life in the school.  Please do not hesitate to speak with us if you have any queries.  Thank you for your continued support in helping your child with their reading, times tables and other homework.

We look forward to continuing to work alongside you in educating your child for the rest of the academic year.

Stackpole 2018- Day 4 Our Last Night


Today was our final day of activities! Two of the groups were very excited about doing coasteering, something they’d been enviously discussing with their friends all week.

Other groups did the other activities, with cycling being a particular highlight! One group helped to clear an overgrown wall in preparation for a planned conservation project. The children are definitely tired tonight after a busy few days, and I’ve had a few comments that they’re looking forward to their own beds!
All the children have thoroughly enjoyed their week and it’s great when asking around that they’ve all enjoyed different activities. Tonight they are excited about spending their money at the gift shop and buying a keepsake to remember their experiences.

Stackpole 2018- Day 3


Finally, a photo of the whole group! It’s been such a busy week and another busy day today, with the various groups doing mountain biking, a coastal walk, coasteering, climbing and orienteering in the woods.                                                                                                Tonight, Class 8 are going do to their nightline, before an early night – everyone (staff included!) is tired after a busy couple of days.

The children have been a credit to us all week, giving everything a go and really digging deep when they come up against a challenge or something they don’t think they can do.

Tomorrow, the children are looking forward to their final activities, having heard all the exciting stories from their friends throughout the week!

Stackpole 2018- Day 2



This morning, our group were the first group to go coasteering. They loved it! However, as you can see from the photos, putting wet-suits on was a struggle!
One of the other groups went to the woods to do some conservation and orienteering and one group went cycling. They all looked a bit more worn out coming back compared to how they left, but they all said they’ve had a good time.
The other two groups were out climbing and coastal walking, so we wouldn’t see them until dinner. It has been such a busy all round but they have enjoyed every minute!

Stackpole 2018- Day 1



After the children arrived just before 4, there was much excitement as they found out their rooms. We went for a short walk around the Stackpole site, finding out a little bit of the history.
Dinner was sausages and potatoes, followed by chocolate eclairs. It went down very well!
We’re about to have a fire drill, followed by chance to write diaries before bed time so that we’re ready for a busy week ahead!
