Doucecroft School has opened a new garden within the Transition Hub at the school.  The Transition Garden provides a relaxing and quiet working area with cover for our older students aged 16-19yrs who are preparing for life beyond school.  Flowers have been planted in the area that were chosen especially for their look, smell and feel.

We are very grateful to Toyota Lexus who donated the costs to create this wonderful space for our pupils.

Hayley Fraser, Assistant Head Teacher and Transition Lead at Doucecroft school said:

This will make a massive difference to our pupils, we have seen the benefit of the outdoors and how this helps our pupils wellbeing.

The school held a small opening ceremony last week where pupils enjoyed cakes in the sunshine. Guests were even treated to lovely impromptu singing performance from one of the pupils.
