Thornbeck College

Thornbeck College is an Independent Specialist College providing personalised programmes to autistic and neurodivergent individuals

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

Following the Christmas break learners have been working hard to prepare the Horticulture site at Thornbeck.

Learners have worked as a team to: 

  • Dig and weed the poly-tunnel in preparation for planting
  • Identify items that need purchasing from the local community
  • Visit the local community to make a range of session purchases
  • Weed the raised beds to ensure they are ready for vegetables to be grown
  • Clear and maintain the grounds by recycling the old greenhouse which was damaged by Storm Arwen.
  • Wash the plant pots and hanging baskets in preparation for growing flowers

Participating in the above activities has supported the learners to develop their employability and independent living skills.
