Will you be studying for exams this year? The exam period can become a stressful and daunting time for all involved.

Join VICTA at Magdalen Farm, Somerset to refresh your mind in the beautiful countryside, from the 132-acre organic farm on the banks of the River Axe to the crashing waves on the North Coast, we will embrace it all. Revision time will be built into the activity programme in which you can revise in the best way that suits you, whether this is in a quiet room at a desk to yourself or in a group session with peers. We will also have some ex-teachers who will be around to help where needed.

This activity is a great opportunity to meet other young people of a similar age group. Everyone will get stuck into farm life together – helping on the farm, clearing out the chicken coop and collecting eggs.

Exercise, revising with friends and taking your studies outside are three ways that VICTA can help you this April! We have taken inspiration from BBC Bitesize, who have outlined 5 top tips to ensure you soak up all the information you need to make your revision more effective https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zr4g6v4.

Combining activity, country air and some concentrated revision time might make your exam preparation just that a little bit easier!
