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.

World Book Day is that time of year when we like to highlight the importance of reading.

Class five spent the whole morning with their heads in books, including the staff. The classroom had never been so quiet!

Josh loves mucking out the stables almost as much as he loves riding the horses! It’s great to see our pupils getting stuck in and developing such a strong work ethic.

Alfie has become quite the chef since he joined class five at the Mackenzie Thorpe Centre in January. The Monday afternoon cookery sessions are his favourite time of the week, and ours too! Mmm, delicious.
