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.

Thornhill Park School celebrated National Careers Week with a range of activities across our school. Our young people engaged in career related activities looking at the importance of having a goal and focused on 'dreaming big'. 

A number of pupils completed activities based on 'When I grow up, I want to be' and were given choices of potential careers they would like to do when they are older. There were some great ideas including an iPad Tester and Film ​Reviewer. 

Other activities were more practical, such as exploring items used within certain careers and role play. Some of our other pupils researched various careers, also looking at and preparing CVs and practicing interviews. There were also visits to a number of colleges and some of our pupils took part in relevant work experience.
