Sibford Workshops



Here at Sibford the workshops are going particularly well. On Thursday, Chris is taking a group of students to Edge Hill, site of a decisive battle during the civil war. This is part of his history workshop which is proving very popular. His class have been looking at local history and the role of the Banbury area in the English Civil War. We are all looking forward to the battle reenactments!

We are fortunate this year to have a cookery teacher with us and Sarah has been running a fantastic cookery workshop. So far this week we have enjoyed a sumptious apple crumble and some excellent pancakes. The first question asked by most staff members at the morning meeting is, "What are you making today Sarah?" Jam tarts, I am promised.
