The Drop In @Wavell

...................................................................................................................................................

In January 2015 we moved into the former caretaker’s bungalow which had been completely renovated and altered to provide a fantastic standalone building, now known as D Block.

Drop-in

D Block has many advantages but most importantly it allows access to all, including, disabled access. We now have 2 counselling rooms, a meeting room and a large kitchen/ central drop in room which is the hub of D Block. Outside there is a large secure garden where our popular Garden Club is based.

D Block In is run by the Pastoral Mentor and Student Support, who offer 1-1 pastoral support to students, giving them an opportunity to talk about any worries or concerns they may have.

Breakfast Club Tuesday and Thursday mornings 7.30 – 8.20 a.m. This session is open to all students and is a place where they can meet friends and chill out before school. There is an option of buying breakfast at the cost of £1 for toast/cereal and a hot drink.

Due to Covid restrictions  the following Drop-in group sessions are not currently running

The Military Drop In Wednesday Lunchtime

Held on a Wednesday lunchtime this session is for students from Military families only and is an opportunity for them to meet and socialise with other young people from similar backgrounds. It also provides a place to chat about any issues or worries especially during periods of deployment. We provide free toast and a drink at this session but students can bring their own lunch with them to eat in the Drop In.

Years 7,8 and 9 Wednesdays from 3.00pm 

This session will be held every Wednesday from 3.00 to 4.15p.m. This youth club session is a time for students to have fun and chill out with their friends. We provide a range of free activities from arts and crafts to outdoor activities in the Drop In garden including football and basketball.
