We are extremely proud of the partnership between Grafham Water Centre and Cambridge Regional College.   

 Our SEND students gain great experience from visiting the Centre to participate in environmental work experience projects which provides them with the skills they need for their future working lives. This provides a safe environment for them to flourish and to develop their work skills in an outdoor environment, whilst developing a strong work ethic and resilience to work on task and project completion. We are all ambitious for our students to achieve and make progress and to be part of the working community.    

In addition to this the real-life learning, outside of the classroom, enables our student to build confidence, self-esteem, independence, and a range of social skills which prepares them to be responsible, respectful, and active citizens who contribute positively to society. They also develop and promote healthy living and life skills ready for their next steps into different forms of work and to prepare for their adult lives.
