The LIVE students were given the opportunity to participate in a residential trip to Butlins in Minehead on the 19th June 2017.  We took 15 students and 9 staff on a 5 day break, the students took part in activities such as swimming, Go Karting and Ten Pin Bowling and as the weather was so good, trips to the beach.  The students also thoroughly enjoyed the evening entertainment where they sang and danced along to tribute bands such as Take That and participated in activities put on by the Red Coats.  All students and staff had a fabulous time, it is amazing to see how the students grow in confidence in a short space of time and come back to college with wonderful memories of the time they have spent with their friends.
