The Woodpecker Class is the Specialist Autism Provision for FE students at John Grant School.

Our students enjoy visiting the local community, traveling by public transport to enjoy lunches out and walks along the beach.

Every week we swim in the school pool, we improve swimming skills and get the chance to relax and unwind.

During PE lessons we enjoy trampolining, we practice skills and work towards achieving certificates.

Life skills are a big part of what we teach in Woodpecker, we always try to place a practical element to every subject we teach. This term we are working with money to teach mathematics and using professions in English lessons.
