Calthorpe School, Birmingham

“The continued high levels of support, friendliness, standard of the facilities and benefits to our students keep us coming back for more. We’re regulars! It gives our pupils the opportunity to socialise with friends, use skills learned in the classroom in a meaningful context, increasing independence and skills!”
Mrs S Cooper, Broomfield School. Leeds

“The children get increased independence, the challenge of adjusting to new routines and allows them to interact with each other in a way not facilitated within a school environment. Our children really enjoyed meeting with group from another school and we shared an end of holiday party. I would thoroughly recommend the facilities and staff to any other service.”
Newark Orchard School, Nottingham

“The Centre offers social and personal opportunities to enable pupils to develop skills in a new environment away from home and they have enjoyed the challenge and extension of different activities in new area.”
Mr B Blackman, Nether Hall School, Leicester

“We’ve enjoyed our first visit. It has revealed much about our students and being away from home is very beneficial to them. It is good to have a Centre like Wingate that can deal with those with more profound disabilities.”
