Bronte house caters for a small group of young people aged 10-13 years where we look at embedding the skills developed in Lowry house and adapting these to new learning experiences. With the support of the schools designated Life Skills Worker, the young people are encouraged to access a variety of different social care activities within the local community and developing a sense of independence, which are all accredited as part of the OCR life and living skills programme that runs throughout the 24hr curriculum.
As the young people are entering a significant developmental stage in their life we look to embed self-care skills and the importance of good personal hygiene, something that has been significantly helped by the recent refurbishment of the house to produce 11 en-suite bedrooms.
The house has recently undertaken a significant development in producing an open plan, family environment. The house now consists of all en-suite bathrooms with fitted furniture, an open plan pool room/lounge and a gaming room.
