Learning undertaken at the house covers meal preparation, domestic tasks the social skills necessary to live with others. Whilst at the house, use is made of the shopping facilities within Thurcroft, to further maximise the role of the facility within the Preparation for Adulthood curriculum. Wherever possible students travel to the house using public transport to help develop their travel awareness.
