Our Life Skills area is predominantly used by our Year 11 students, where they can learn basic life skills, such as learning how to make hot drinks and learning basic cooking skills.
Students are also taught how to use cookers and microwaves safely.
Students are given access to this area as and when necessary, but Year 11 have a particular focus so that they are properly prepared for moving on to either work or further education. Students are helped with planning routes to new educational providers, taught how to get into town, and also given guidance on other aspects regarding independent travel.
This service is available to students at a younger age if they are ready.
Our Quiet Room is a perfect chillout zone for students who need to take some time out.
The room is carpeted and has bean bags to add some home comforts.
The lighting can be user-controlled based on individual needs. Students can elect to dim the lights to a more comfortable level or even darken the room altogether.
