Merlin

In our class we have 7 students aged 16 – 19 yrs, a teacher and 4 teaching assistants.

We feel very privileged to be based in the new further education department. It has many new facilities enabling us to extend our learning and broaden our independent living skills.

We use student’s interests and skills to promote self awareness, self esteem and confidence.

We enjoy meeting new people - you will always find a warm welcome here. We are very good at entertaining our guests especially when we perform in our school productions.

Last year most of us went for a weeks residential to Butlins, it was great to spend social time with our friends and teachers, the entertainment was brilliant.

We have been busy doing some work based enterprise, making cat scratch poles and potting plants.

Our educational visits take us all over Gloucestershire, we visit café’s and restaurants’, garden centres to churches and cathedrals as part of our social development.
