James Cambell Primary School

We have had mostly good weather over the past couple of weeks at Trewern – it almost feels like summer has arrived!

Oasis Academy Shirley Park

Last week we had the ‘Step-up’ students from Oasis Academy in Croydon joining us at the centre for 3 days of activities, looking to build on their teamwork and develop social skills, as well as pushing themselves to do things they maybe never thought they would.

Juliet’s last days at Trewern approach

I’m quite overwhelmed by the kind words and good wishes that I’ve received over the past few days. Trewern has been an enormous part of my life over the last 20 years and I now pass the Centre into Dave Owen’s capable hands, knowing that it will go from strength to strength. My ‘heart felt’…

St Margaret’s Church of England Primary School

Adventure and excitement are always a feature of a St Margaret’s course, and this year was no exception. The children tried so hard and their efforts resulted in a fantastic week.

Becontree Primary School

It has been a full on week at Trewern with pupils from Becontree Primary School. High winds and driving rain have persisted all week making every activity just that little bit more challenging. The year 6 pupils weren’t put off by the added difficulty though and it certainly helped them focus on their teamwork! The…
