Community Service Unit
Our Community Service Unit develops our pupils' organisational, leadership, teamwork, problem-solving and communication skills through the participation in placements in our local community. Each week, around 30 of our pupils spend their Thursday afternoons on CSU placements.
Recent placements have included:
- Local nursery schools and kindergartens
- Local primary schools
- Working with disabled children
- Working with disabled adults
- Sailing for the disabled
- Local kennels, stables and vets practices
- Local charity shops
- Visiting the elderly
The main aim of the CSU is to give something back to our local community and we know that the contribution from our pupils is greatly appreciated. In addition, the placements provide work experience and valuable insight into the caring professions for those considering careers in those areas.
