Students Enjoy a Creative Writing Retreat

Over the past weekend, a group of 21 students embarked on a journey to Springhead, the picturesque Dorset countryside, engaging in a stimulating creative writing retreat. 

They immersed themselves in the stunning surroundings of the Springhead Trust, an area laced with natural beauty. They quenched their thirst with water from the lively, gurgling springs and had the pleasure of reuniting with a local favourite, Gary the Swan. 

They also took leisurely strolls around the charming village of Fontmell Magna, absorbing its tranquil atmosphere. 

This immersive experience sparked a wave of creativity amongst the students. They crafted impressive poetry and compelling stories, and even showcased their theatrical skills by performing plays and spine-chilling ghost stories, showing their versatility and creativity.
