We have 11 classrooms equipped with indoor learning areas, outside verandas and kitchen areas for food preparation or art and craft activities. Most classrooms have access to quiet areas and all classrooms have access to bathrooms which include shower and change facilities.


All areas of the school are wheelchair accessible and there are hoist facilities installed in the bathrooms to support students where appropriate.


A fully equipped adapted hospitality kitchen enables all classes to participate in cooking and food preparation activities which supports learning across many curriculum areas.


A purpose built sensory room is accessed by all classes to meet the diverse sensory needs of all students at our school. Features of the sensory room include a bubble tube, ball pit, cause and effect light and sound activities, tactile walls and a variety of soft play equipment. This is in addition to the range of sensory equipment integrated into each classroom.
