Luke started at Heathermount in September 2008 having experienced times when he has found it very difficult to attend a mainstream school. At Heathermount, Luke is taking GCSEs in Maths and Science as well the City & Guilds Functional Skills exams in English, Maths and ICT.
Luke has made enormous progress since being at Heathermount, so much so that he is now gradually reintegrating back into mainstream education. This is being facilitated through a structured programme of attending the local academy school next door to Heathermount where he is taking BTEC Sport. Luke originally started this programme accompanied by a member of staff but now feels sufficiently confident to make his own way there and back independently for each lesson. Luke also plays rugby for the school on a regular basis and has been named as 'Man of the Match'.
