Our students enjoy the safe and familiar surroundings of the school. We aim to provide them with a ‘tool box for life’ – a variety of skills and coping mechanisms that they can take with them in to the next stage of their life, whether it be further education or employment. Our methods give learners the essential skills needed to be confident in the workplace, plus the knowledge and practical experiences needed to lead fulfilling adult lives.
Students in the post 16 group work with their teacher and parents to develop a 'moving on plan' - for some this may be support in applying for a college course or applying for job and training schemes. Help and guidance is given to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible.
Young people gain age-appropriate life and independence skills. Parent and carer comments included; 'Since being in residential we have noticed he can share a meal, demonstrating that he is thinking about other people. It's a huge step for X to be that social aware'.
