Our Subjects

All students at Activate follow an individualised timetable which has been tailored to their likes and interests.

Students on all of our curriculum pathways may study some of the following subjects, with individualised activities as part of each session.

Animal Care

Activate has an accessible animal centre where our students can learn how to take care and look after our animals.

Animal Care includes the care of our livestock including sheep, horses and poultry as well as smaller animals like hamsters, mice, guinea pigs and our aquatic animals.

Students are involved in the feeding, grooming and general health & wellbeing of all our onsite animals.

Our Animal Care lessons help our learners develop their independence, motor skills, confidence and functional skills.

Practical Independence Skills

This option helps you develop skills which you can apply in your daily life such as changing lightbulbs, hanging shelves, and other DIY tasks.

It is particularly useful for those learners that may want to move into independent or supported living.
