Sixth Form visit to meet elderly neighbours
2 Sixth Form pupils make a weekly visit to talk to residents in Ambleside.
To give pupils opportunities to talk with elderly people and to give the residents of Ambleside opportunities to meet enthusiastic young local students.
Dean Close has had a long-standing relationship with Ambleside; Sixth Formers have visited for probably 20 years and more.
Time is given to these pupils to make these visits and enthusiasm is a necessary characteristic.
Outcomes are assessed by the verbal feedback from both residents and the Residential Home staff.
Pupils are generally in the Sixth Form.
This is a weekly activity during term-time all year round.
