Neurodiversity Week provides special opportunity to celebrate students with learning differences

Staff and students host a variety of activities to raise awareness for neurodiversity

Neurodiversity Week is a special opportunity to celebrate the strengths and talents of people with learning differences. It is also one way of reminding everyone to be kind, tolerant and accepting of others. We were delighted to hold a variety of activities to raise awareness for neurodiversity and to celebrate the strengths of students in our school.

This week, we welcomed Lesley Lock and Annie Burnett to Northampton High School for informative coffee mornings, exclusively for Northampton High parents. Led by our two guest specialists, these events aimed to provide families with support and information surrounding neurodiversity charities.

We are very proud of how our pupils have committed themselves to this celebration and the huge efforts they have made to highlight this special week. A massive well done to some of our Senior School pupils for leading the Junior assembly on Tuesday and for speaking eloquently about their experiences as neurodiverse people.

We are delighted to have raised money to support Autism East Midlands and the British Dyslexia Association through our fundraising efforts. A huge thank you to our Femsock group for hosting a wonderfully well-attended bake sale, raising £185 for our chosen charities. We would also like to thank each of our Senior School pupils for joining us in a mufti day and donating to these wonderful causes!

We are proud to have made this week such a fabulous celebration of people with learning differences!
