Our unique ‘Zone’ workshops, led by the RE:quest team, combine elements of the RE and PSHE curriculum to support students at a key moment in their school career. Over 3 sessions, students travel back in time to the time of the ancient Israelites. As they delve into the story of this epic journey into the Promised Land, students are invited to reflect on their own life journey:

  • Celebrating their past achievements and reflecting on the lessons they have learned;
  • Exploring the present challenge of moving into a new phase of life, and how to manage change positively;
  • Looking ahead to the future – not just in terms of what they might want to do, but who they hope to become.

Each workshop comprises a range of games, activities, drama, discussion tasks and individual reflection work, and lasts 90 minutes.

The residential runs at 2 locations in the Midlands:
