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.

As part of mental health week Ashley from class 6 made stress balls using balloons and cornflour. We made a lot of mess but it was worth it.


Exploring the natural world is brilliant for our mental health. The guys in class 6 went to Errington woods to do some bird and animal watching. This tied in really well to our science topic on habitats.

Class 6 had a really good discussion around the things that affect our mental health. We talked about and made lists of the positive and negative things that we experience.
