“young people engage in a wide variety of activities within the school and the wider community, such as the art club, visits to museums and youth clubs. these give young people the opportunity to mix with their peers in a familiar and reassuring environment. activities in the local community provide them with the chance to socialise with new peers in a different setting outside of the school. this enables young people to significantly improve their communication and social skills” – Ofsted report september 2017
Extra-curricular activities support boarders in developing good communication skills, confidence and life skills. A varied programme of extra-curricular activities is available to our young people on a residential or short break basis, which makes use of school facilities, visiting instructors and community resources.
There is a Breakfast Club before school and various after-school clubs including art, music, sport, cooking and Tai-Chi. We facilitate participation in local Youth Clubs and arrange regular accompanied trips out to places of interest including theatres, museums and theme parks.
