Mackenzie Thorpe Centre

The Mackenzie Thorpe Centre is an independent specialist school based in South Bank, Redcar and Cleveland for pupils aged 5-19

Working together to inspire, support, celebrate and equip autistic and neurodiverse people to fulfil their potential in life.

Pupils in class 5 at the Mackenzie Thorpe Centre have been busy enjoying an active curriculum. As part of our PE session, pupils accessed the local gym. They took part in an induction programme showing them how to safely use the cardio equipment and the weightlifting equipment.  

As part of Independent Living sessions, pupils accessed the local community when shopping for ingredients, and then used the school kitchen facilities to follow their chosen recipes, to complete their practical cooking session.  One pupil made strawberry lemonade and granola bars as a test run in preparation for the school sports day.
