Bradford Centre holds successful open morning

Families of young adults with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in Bradford took the opportunity to find out how our Bradford Centre can help them at our first open morning yesterday (Wednesday 31 January).

Henshaws opened its Bradford Centre at Listerhills Science Park in the autumn, welcoming its first intake of seven students in September last year. It caters for young adults aged from 16 to 25 with a wide range of disabilities, helping them to achieve their full potential for living independently and preparing them for employment through both educational progression and a recognised College curriculum.

Staff and current students welcomed almost 30 visitors to the open event, including prospective students and their families as well as professionals from the SEND educational sector.

Lisa Hart, Deputy Principal at Henshaws Specialist College said: “The atmosphere was great.  Our students were brilliant at sharing their own experience of Henshaws and showing people around.  Many of the visitors described them as inspiring – and of course we agree.”

The next open morning at the Bradford Centre will be in March – full details, including how to book, will be available on the website soon.

Henshaws Bradford Centre supports students through our pathways specifically developed to prepare you for employment or further study.
