After – School Clubs
On Mondays and Thursdays there are a range of clubs and activities that students can attend from 2.30 – 3.30 pm. We may be able to offer transportation for students to get home after the clubs providing school mini buses are available, and depending on numbers of students attending each club. Staff run a range of clubs which include Cookery, Seasonal Sports Activities, Girls club, Youth Club, Music and Performance, Art and Film Making.
Educational Visits and residentials
Our students take part in off-site educational visits and activities as part of our SHAPE curriculum . We see this as an important part of learning as well as gaining other valuable skills in the community. All students are given the opportunity to go on a class or school residential that is appropriate for their levels or independence and their ability to cope with the challenges and experiences that will be offered. Positive attitudes, respect for others and co-operation with staff is always expected. You will need to sign consent forms for local educational visits and activities as well as for any residentials. We do raise money to subsidise all trips and residentials to reduce costs to families.
