Thornhill Park School

Thornhill Park School is an independent specialist school based in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear for pupils aged 4-19


Our mission is to work together inspiring, supporting, celebrating and equipping autistic and neurodiverse children, young people and adults.

Pupils at Thornhill Park School's Emsworth site really enjoyed a visit from David Mitchell, a Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) volunteer. 

David explained the dangers of water and how we could reduce the risk for ourselves and others. Learners had ample opportunity to ask questions and try on some of the RNLI uniform, which the pupils loved.

This was a fantastic talk by David, and all the learners left knowing how to keep themselves and others safe when near water.
