School Trips

CEO's Blog - 9th December 2022 School Trips School trips used to be the highlight of the year for many children across the UK, partly because of how infrequently they happened. It was the novelty rather than the quality which made them special. That's not how we do...

CEO’s Blog – 2nd December 2022

CEO's Blog - 2nd December 2022 December is upon us and it's amazing how quickly this year is passing. It always feels like that, I suppose, but it never fails to surprise us. Looking around our schools and sites this week, everyone is really getting into the Christmas...

CEO’s Blog – 25th November 2022

CEO’s Blog – 25th November 2022 In exactly one month’s time, it will be Christmas Day, the second Christmas since COVID-19 restrictions ended.   It is amazing to think how quickly that time has passed, and how well our children, young people and staff teams have...

CEO’s Blog – 11th November

    CEO's Blog - 11th November   After a couple of weeks when celebration has been on everyone's minds, where we have seen religious celebrations like Diwali take place, as well as other traditional events such as Bonfire Night and Halloween, it has...

Another week and another blog – I think it shows my age when Friday seems to come around too quickly.

The young people at the school site have settled so well.

I have seen an enormous draft list for our buds and buddies (the young people who are trained to support others). It is brilliant that so many of our children want to help and support others.

A number of our children were off school and the Learning Centre for their Eid celebrations and I am certain they had a great time.

Hollinwood Academy held an open afternoon on Wednesday. There is still a lot of interest and we are presently working with the Local Authority to release some more places; I will keep families informed. We have another open evening from 4.00pm-7.00pm on Wednesday next week.

Our Horizons base at the Learning Centre looks brilliant and the young people are really enjoying their new surroundings. Can I thank the staff for ensuring their learning environment is so beautiful and comfortable. No more news on Medtia Square yet, I’m afraid, but I will keep you updated.

John Holland, our lead at Horizons, will not be there for a few weeks – Daniel Wood will be substituting for John until he returns.

Jenny Richardson, our Director of Training and Development, has started some preliminary discussions with a (secret!) Southern University. They came to visit this week and we are hopeful that this could lead to the Group being able to offer foundation and full degrees in the future.

There have been some notable achievements from our young people this week:

  • 2 students are now part of the Oldham Youth Council
  • Stefan received a National Award for his cricketing skills

Congratulations to all of them!

As we no longer have a Welsh deputy, I can safely say ‘Come on, England!!’ in tomorrow’s match……..

As always, thank you for your continued support,
