We believe it so important that our pupils not only give to their community, but fully understand and reflect on their place in it. That is why this year we have developed a partnership with a school in Liverpool: St Vincent’s, a school for sensory impairment and other needs.
Our Year 6 class attended a week-long residential as part of a reverse inclusion trip to gain a true insight into life for a young person with sensory impairment. There they learned to navigate life as a blind person, learned to play sports blindfolded and were taught braille by their new friends.

They even held a joint music concert together where we gave some St Vincent’s pupils the opportunity to hold and play instruments they never had before.
At the end of their stay, our Year 6s told us how much the experience made them reflect on how lucky they are and how much more determined they were to help others while the St Vincent’s students loved making new friends and teaching them new skills.
What a fantastic few days with lots of hard work finished off with a concert. Well done to all pupils working together to create an amazing experience for us all. We hope we can all stay in touch! 🎶👏🏻🎵 @StVincentsL12 @DrJohnAPatters1 @davidstvin @Lyceum_London pic.twitter.com/afrwAHmZiu
