Three Ways School

Three Ways School is a Special Needs Academy in Bath and NE Somerset offering a unique, stimulating learning environment to pupils with learning difficulties and disabilities aged 3-19. At Three Ways School we’re making a difference to young people with learning difficulties and disabilities every day. We want to do more, and we need your help.

Our students receive personalised care and support throughout the school day but it is extremely hard for them to access mainstream clubs and activities in the communities. The students at Three Ways need a higher level of specialist staff support to access activities and this makes the provision much more expensive than mainstream provision.

We receive government funding for core curriculum teaching, but that doesn’t cover ambitious extra projects.  However, we are determined not to let that stand in our way of giving our students access to new experiences, to developing passions and hobbies, to being part of a team and community– an opportunity this community deserve as much as any other school child.

Last year’s Try Games have allowed us to purchase three table tennis tables which will be used for indoor and outdoor table cricket, table tennis and a variety of other sports. These enable all students, with mobility or in wheelchairs to access a new sport and develop a new hobby, interest or skill.

The next Try Games aims to raise even more toward providing new facilities and access to activities for young people at Three Ways School.
