News from Sheringham Woodfields School
In September, Sheringham Woodfields School, will have grown to meet the
educational individual needs of 90 students, aged 2-19, with complex learning
difficulties. On July 4th 2008, we celebrated our 5th Birthday with lots of events
taking place throughout the day. Staff and students, past and present, families and
community visitors saw performances of "Jackass Blues" by our talented 6th form,
"Grease" by the Dance and Drama Club, "Holidays" by Foundation and Key
Stage 1 and lots more.
From 7th-11th July, 10 fearless members of Key Stages 4 & 5, along with 4 support
staff, spent a week at an Outdoor Activity Centre in Wensleydale, Yorkshire. Activities
included; archery, zip-wiring, abseiling, gorge walking, climbing and canoeing. Everyone
found something to challenge them and had a truly wonderful time. Many thanks go to
Coredale & Abbs of Bodham and Mundesley, who sponsored the transport costs of this
trip. Without their help, the school would have had the additional substantial fuel costs.

Frank Butt, one of our 6th Form students, has raised over £1000 by doing
a sponsored gym challenge of 125 steps on the treadmill. This was a particularly
challenging exercise for Frank, with the money raised going towards our "Minibus

place to learn.
