All are welcome here to walk with Jesus as we love, learn and flourish.

Willersley 2023 – Thursday

This week is all about making great friendships

Willersley 2023


We don't just do activities in the daytime - they keep us working here right into the night. Last night we were doing night time axe throwing and fencing. But keeping busy helps to make sure we make the most of every minute - and we sleep well!

Fencing & Axe throwing!

Via Ferrati

Can you imagine climbing, but instead of going upwards you go along the cliff wall? That's Via Ferrati - and it takes a lot of skill, patience and determination. But we all loved it!

It may look like we're just on holiday...

but in fact we're just having endless learning experiences. We're learning how to communicate. We're learning how to face our fears. We're learning how to help one another, and how to listen - not just to our instructors but also (and more importantly perhaps) to our peers. Our learning covers all subjects - science (fires, gravity), physical education, maths (problem solving), English... Of course the holiday is great in itself, but the fact that we're also learning such valuable skills is tremendous!

Following Boris Johnson’s 8pm announcement we now know that as of midnight tonight the country has entered a new period of Lockdown, a Lockdown that includes the closure of school. 

School will be open for the children of Key Workers and for pupils who are deemed vulnerable. All pupils will be provided with work in order for them to keep learning. 

Tonight’s announcement was very short notice for you as parents and also for us as a Staff. Tomorrow, by 11am there will be three tasks on the school website for each Class to complete as their Tuesday learning. However, School will be closed to ALL pupils tomorrow. 


Staff, however, will be in school preparing for the rest of the Lockdown. Through tomorrow we will prepare school to make it safe for Key worker pupils and vulnerable children to return. 

We will send out a form for you to apply for a place in the Keyworker Bubbles and we will let you know more about how children will be learning remotely. We will do our very best to re-open to Key Worker children and vulnerable pupils by Wednesday. 

I am aware of how difficult this is for you all, School closing creates a multitude of problems for everyone but data surrounding this awful disease dictates that this is a necessary step. As ever, the safety and health of everyone must be a priority. 

Thank you for your continued support and we will be in frequent contact over the next few days. 

Many thanks
