Supporting young people to enjoy life and succeed is central to our work. We support young people to pursue their current hobbies along with trying new experiences. Evening activities are planned and include youth clubs, swimming, cinema, bowling and eating out. We have a wonderful leisure barn on site which houses a spacious soft surface gym, a sensory room and interactive play room. In addition young people can enjoy our woodland trails and cycling, all within the safety of the school site. We have our own pottery and kiln along with vegetable and flower gardens and a workshop where students can learn woodwork and decorating skills. We encourage young people to try new activities and meet new people, along with supporting them to maintain their existing friendships. We have good links with the community and plan activities off the school campus. We provide the opportunity for our full time young people to go on holiday. These are planned around individual needs. Some young people prefer short breaks whilst others are happy to be away for a week. The residential homes have access to a fleet of vehicles so that students can get to local facilities. We also make use of public transport for both local and longer journeys dependent on the young person. During the school holidays we plan activities for all young people to take part in if they wish. We also have activity plans for each young person. The individual plans take into consideration the young person ’ s hobbies, interests and wishes.
