Both former and current students from Heathermount School in Ascot were invited to an award presentation evening. They were presented their certificates by Heathermount’s Chair of Governors Eileen Jackman.
Staff from the school welcomed back many former students and their families, giving them the opportunity to celebrate a range of achievements throughout their time at Heathermount. Many former students have now moved on to further education and employment.
Head Teacher, Ruth Bovill, commented; “The evening was a great success. It was wonderful to see and speak to the students, particularly those who left us at the end of last term.”
“When I first came here I knew I was difficult. The school has given me the support and encouragement needed to move on to college and I am aiming to go to university" said former student Luke (not pictured).
At Heathermount all students are helped to become independent, confident young adults who are able to leave school and enter the world of further education or employment. No student has left Heathermount and become a government statistic for Not in Employment, Education or Training (NEET). All have either progressed to colleges of further education or into the world of work.
Our person centred approach is critical to the success of every one of our students, and there is a strong commitment to a positive and progressive school experience. The key to success for students lies within our capacity to individualise the learning experience around the young person's strengths and autistic needs.
