Active, meaningful lives

We want to give everyone living at Fullerton House School every opportunity possible to have a great time.

Fullerton House School has an Activity Programme Co-ordinator who liaises closely with the multi-disciplinary team to develop and deliver exciting, stimulating and meaningful activities. These are enjoyed on evenings, at weekends and during school holidays. Fullerton memory book image

People have access to a wide choice of clubs, activities and outings. During term time they can participate in both structured and informal activities including visits to the swimming pool, bowling alley and local walks, as well as joining ICT, cinema, art, Scouting and youth clubs. Individuals can also take part in the Youth Award Scheme which is similar to the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

We hold regular and popular themed events, such as a Valentine’s ball, Halloween party and an annual school prom, to name a few.

At weekends and during the school holidays there is a programme of exciting trips that are enjoyed by everyone. Trips have included visits to the coast, walking in the Peak District and fun at Alton Towers and Flamingo Land.

Outside the formal curriculum we provide multi-tiered activities. Each person has an individual activity programme and community access plan. This includes a range of activities and visits. We also run theme-based holiday programmes during the school breaks.

Each person we support has a Memory Book, which with support from their keyworker, celebrates and pictorially charts their experiences, events and activities from admission to leaving Fullerton House School.
