"Wow! What a weekend we had at Hagg Farm! We arrived after school on Friday 17 April and soon unpacked and got used to our new idyllic surroundings in the heart of the Peak District. After tea we got straight into some revision sessions with students in Year 11 studying maths and science, Year 10 students focussing on English and Year 9 developing team building skills. The evening finished with hot chocolate and a stray sheep!
We woke up to clear blue skies, perfect conditions for abseiling and gorge walking. In addition, there were sessions for students on combating exam stress as well as revision for the English GCSE. We rounded off the day with a gorgeous ramble in the local area taking in some breath taking views and evening sunshine.
Sunday morning there was chance for some students to do the zip wire and Jacob's Ladder while the Year 11 students did revision for their history and geography GCSEs.
The students were a credit to the academy throughout the weekend. They all worked hard, had fun and enjoyed new experiences.
We loved Hagg Farm so much we have booked two weekends already for next year.
