Aycliffe School

Aycliffe School is an independent, purpose-built specialist school based at the North East Centre for Autism, Newton Aycliffe in County Durham for pupils aged 3-19

Working together to inspire, support, celebrate and equip autistic and neurodiverse people to fulfil their potential in life.

Pupils at Aycliffe School went pumpkin picking at Baydale Pumpkin Patch for the second year running to celebrate Halloween.
Last year many of the school's pupils got the chance to go and pick their own pumpkins. This year even more went for a great experience. Not put off by the rain, they loved picking the pumpkins with many trying to find the biggest they could possibly find. 
Learners then carved the pumpkin with Class 7's Edward Gibbons winning first place for his design. He said: "It was fun picking and carving the pumpkins."
Halloween was finished off with a party in school with lots of activities including apple bobbing and best costume competition.
Owen Dickinson, level 4, said: "Baydale was great last year and I'm so glad that we could organise the pumpkin picking again! The students have loved doing it both years."
