Life Skills

Quick Qwerty Typing programme (for students who use a laptop in school)

“Austin Powers” after school club

Mrs Austin (SENCO) develops students’ life skills and confidence through basic cookery and craft classes as well as discussions about health and safety, personal hygiene, social skills etc. (This is an invite-only club.)

We can refer students who have significant SEND, such as students with an EHCP, for Travel Training. This enables students to walk to school safely and learn how to get buses/ trains independently in preparation for their transition to Post-16 education and employment.
