Phab Weekend – the First of Many
Staff and students recently hosted the first Phab residential weekend at Aldenham. 26 Sixth formers, together with members of teaching and non-teaching staff, spent an action packed time with 11 young people with special needs. The activities included a petting zoo of exotic animals, a music session run by Electric Umbrella, a visit to Aldenham Country Park, as well as art, drama, science and sports sessions. Fortunately the weather was good which meant that plenty of time was spent outdoors enjoying our superb grounds.

It was a wonderful experience, greatly enjoyed by everyone. At times a challenging weekend, but all our students excelled in enabling our guests to have a terrific time. They handled all situations with maturity and forged great bonds with their guests whose parents were hugely grateful to Aldenham students for looking after their children so well. This allowed them to have some important and rare time to themselves.
We look forward to repeating this amazing and genuinely life-changing experience next year.
