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

Willersley 2023 – Tuesday

Willersley 2023


Today we have been very busy. Luckily we start each day with a hearty breakfast as we get hungry very quickly. Between, canoeing, initiative exercises, kayaking and archery - we do so much it's hard to take a breath!

Initiative Exercises and Archery

Today we did initiative exercises where we really learned the value of team work and good communication. We also did archery - here it is very different. You have to be vigilant and rely on yourself - you have to follow the safety rules carefully and then think about how to correct your aim to get a better result.

We love it here

Can you imagine? Here we are in a real life castle - sleeping and eating in it? It's wonderful. Of course we miss all our families and our friends, but really we're so busy and we have so many opportunities that there isn't much time for missing home. If we're not learning new skills or bonding with each other, we're probably eating or sleeping!

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
