The LVS school in Oxford is a specialist school designed for young people on the autism spectrum. Nicola took the opportunity to have a tour of classes underway and to meet with teachers and pupils along with the Head Boy and Head Girl of the school.
Nicola was delighted to hear about the new BTEC classes that have begun at the school; providing even more opportunities for students to learn and grow.
The students gathered for a Question & Answer session with Nicola, in which local, national and international issues were discussed.

Nicola says I always enjoy visiting LVS Oxford. It is wonderful to see the extraordinary work the staff are doing to support these young people and watching them go from strength to strength; taking on even more academic options as well as vocational learning courses. The students also kept me on my toes during my visit, challenging me on the political topics of the day!
Head of Centre at LVS Oxford Louisa Allison-Bergin said We were delighted to welcome Nicola and show her the crucial work we are doing to develop the prospects of young adults with autism. By helping them become more independent and self-sufficient, raising their confidence levels and providing ever increasing academic options, we are totally focused on ensuring our learners go on to employment or further education when they leave LVS Oxford. Nicola saw first-hand how we do this, and was impressed – she said she had seen a real improvement and difference in how the students are learning now.
