National Citizens Service (NCS) The Challenge charity, are a proud partner of ours. We were grateful to have young people from their Autumn Wave, partner with our school community as a link to their social action project. The young people organised, fund raised and hosted the schools first ever Autumn Fair Family Fun Day. Working towards a common goal of social inclusion, activities were designed to cater to parents as well as young people from all different backgrounds and included things like soft play, ball games, splat and even a talent show. Needless to say, the event was a huge success. Watch this space for more collaborations with NCS.
One of our more recent partnerships with lots of potential, Evelyn grace Academy (EGA) and The Michael Tippett School are working towards and an inclusive peer, paired-reading scheme to support some of our students to develop their literacy skills. But also, encourage some amazing connections and communities between both centres.
The Michael Tippett School and Ebony Stables are working together to support the needs of our students by teaching riding and horse care to build confidence and life skills in through work with animals.
Students from TMTS and Jessop Primary School are working together to improve their cooking skills in weekly workshops in our training kitchen.
A very positive partnership was formed when our students donned overalls and picked up their tools to become engineers with the Ilderton Motor Vehicle Project (IMP). An approved Alternative Education Provider, IMP is a recognised Pan London provision that has been quality assured by the London Boroughs of Southwark and Lambeth to name a couple.
The work of the Project centres on young people’s development using motor vehicles, such as cars and motorbikes, as tools for engaging them. IMP endeavours to create a viable environment that facilitates learning, leisure and empowerment for young people.
