Here at Ingestre Hall we have a passion for creativity, and making a positive difference to the lives of young people is at the heart of everything we do. Below are the weekly blogs that we post for the groups that stay with us on residentials. We look for inspiration in our day to day lives and believe it is important to recognise and celebrate talent and creativity. As well as this we post about all things Ingestre as we hope to have a close and personable relationship with visitors both past and present.

Posts from November 2019

Last week we welcomed back Windsor Park middle school for a ‘wild world’ themed residential. The school made the short journey over from Uttoxeter bringing with them a host of enthusiastic artists, musicians, actors, actresses and dancers. 
Ingestre Hall is still echoing with the screams of the students from Tameside primary and their ‘scream machine’ themed week. If I’m being completely honest I had no clue what the theme of ‘scream machine’ would involve however, once the the group had arrived it became clear to me that my idea of the theme was entirely different to the students. 
Last week, our skilled facilitators , hosted some students from the National Citizenship Service in Oxfordshire. With students arriving from two different campuses and three different study courses, this week was set to be an exciting change to our normal weeks. 
Ingestre Hall 2019—Day one. 
 
After a short coach journey, we arrived safely at Ingestre Hall. Those of us who had not been here before were amazed at how beautiful and grand the building was. Once we had been greeted by and introduced to all of the staff, we located our dormitories and began to unpack. We were all very excited to decide which bed we would sleep in and even had to make the beds by ourselves! Following lunch, we got into our creative groups to begin working with our tutors. We have started work on our Arts Awards which is very exciting. After tea, we had some free time which we filled by exploring the downstairs areas in the house and playing lots of games. Some of us got the opportunity to go and visit Ingestre Hall’s ‘WWI Casualty Clearing Station’ where one of the tutors - Felix - gave us lots of information about the war and also gave us the opportunity to explore the artefacts. Following our busy day, we were all very sleepy and were thankful to get tucked up in bed. We’re really looking forward to our week ahead and will let you know what else we have been to very soon!
