Aycliffe School

Aycliffe School is an independent, purpose-built specialist school based at the North East Centre for Autism, Newton Aycliffe in County Durham for pupils aged 3-19

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

Pupils at Aycliffe School participated in an introduction to university session that was provided by University of Sunderland. 

The hands-on session used Lego to help the learners explore the benefits of attending university, the different types of courses that can be studied and the various aspects of student life. 

The pupils found the session to be informative, and it has helped to raise pupils’ aspirations to believe that they can access university in the future.

We would like to thank the Outreach team from University of Sunderland for visiting Aycliffe School and working with our pupils.
