Since I joined New Skill Centre, I immediately felt welcomed by staff and my anxieties about starting at a new school quickly reduced. The positive environment in and outside classes made me feel comfortable and for the first time at a school setting, I felt I was genuinely cared for.
At the school there is a range of interesting subjects from sociology to cooking and many others. In these lessons I have been encouraged and supported, which has built my confidence and has started to reveal my true potential. As well as academic leaning there is a focus on living independently and engaging with the community, which includes trips and visits in lessons such as Community.
My parents have had regular conversations about my progress and well being and the school encourages open and honest communication. In summary, New Skill Centre meets my needs and I feel as if I’m respected and belong here. I would recommend this school to anybody who is thinking about coming here.
