Year 12 Autistic Easter Residential
This Arts Easter ResidentialLink opens in a new window took place from the 20th to 22nd April. It was a fantastic event with 17 students who identified as being autistic, spending three days and two nights experiencing university life, with many being away from home for the first time.
They took part in academic taster sessions, life skills workshops, shopping, cooking and a mini group project. Many of the young people spoke about their renewed confidence as they look to move from school to a more independent future.
