Independent Living Flat
The Independent Living Flat is an area dedicated to our Foundation Learning students (specialist provision) where they learn everyday life skills for independent living, such as preparing food and doing the laundry.
The Flat is extremely beneficial to the students, and is an integral part of the foundation learning curriculum, preparing for adulthood.

The Sensory Room
The sensory room is in place to help the students not only broaden their awareness of their senses, but to also provide them with an area to regulate and manage their emotions when they feel stressed.
Multi-Sensory Environments, or sensory rooms, have been proven to improve the development of thought, intelligence and social skills.
As well as this, sensory rooms offer those with cognitive impairments the opportunity to enjoy and control a variety of sensory experiences.
All students with a SEND need have access to this resource.
