Students with Disabilities

We want to make sure that you have every opportunity to attend events run by Student Opportunity. That’s why we have a quiet half-hour, before the advertised start time of the Summer Fair, should students with disabilities or long-term health conditions wish to visit the fairs before they get very busy. If you have additional needs or require support on the day, please email and we would be happy to support you further.

Read about how to make the most of the fair on the Summer Fair page here.
