'Learning on Location' at Butlins' Skegness

Every year, our Year 8 pupils embark on an adventurous weekend in Skegness. Over the course of the week a team of professional presenters and experts deliver “learning modules” that cover curriculum topics in new and exciting ways. We encourage all of our Year 8 pupils (currently in Year 7) to attend and last year over 200 pupils were involved - and they had a whale of a time!!

Activities include: 

  • making rockets with Starchaser; 
  • using their skills to solve tricky problems;
  • learning dance routines;
  • archery;
  • swimming in a adventure pool with the tallest slide in Europe;
  • visiting the fairground and getting to grips with exotic animals! 

Year 7 pupils have been given letters which allow them to either express an interest or pay a deposit.
