| Our School | Residential | Activities


We believe at St Francis School that we can offer a truly inclusive curriculum that extends beyond the school day ensuring the residential time complements and augments outcomes for the young people. Boarding enables pupils to build on their independence and social skills within the 24 hour curriculum. Residential care officers work with the students supporting them through their learning of independence skills, socializing, cooking, personal care. Residential targets are chosen to enable them to work on their life skills.

For young people with Social Communication Difficulties it is essential they have access to many, varied and fun activities in which there is also the opportunity to practice the skills acquired across the school day and learn to transfer them into their every day life.

The young people have access in the evening to regular stimulating , interesting and challenging activities including :  Art, Sports and a Youth Club, as well as the opportunities of outings in the local community of Bowling, eating out etc.
