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

Grifin Purple and Green class had the opportunity to explore Butterfly World this week as part of their community inclusion curriculum.

The pupils were fascinated by the many types of butterfly and learned about their life cycle, including examining the butterfly larvae. They also met some other curious creatures as they helped feed the fish that call the centre's ponds their home.
