Bowes museum

This term in out and about, 6th form have been learning about places of interest. Today we visited The Bowes Museum. We learned about the history of the museum, the collections of John Bowes and saw the famous silver swan.




6th form’s new rabbit hutch

Today we had a new rabbit hutch delivered. It was made and donated by a friend of The Oaks,  John Farrow. It was made entirely out of recycled pallet wood and other recycled items and is fully insulated to protect our animals in the winter months. Students have learned how it all fits together and its features. We all agree that it is a super addition to our pet care equipment.




A day in Blackpool

Today we went to the Pleasure Beach to experience the sights and sounds of the rides and attractions. We had our lunch in the sunshine and a look around the shops. Some of us went on the tram while the others had a leisurely walk back to our hotel. 



Fantastic breakfast

After a lovely nights sleep, we have been treated to a full English breakfast to set us up for the day in Blackpool

A walk before dinner
