Life Skills at St Ambrose

Our aim is develop key life skills, essential for living in the wider world. The children will develop skills and knowledge and become resilient when faced with a challenge! Practical life skills are an essential part of learning to be independent, feeling confident in the community and help to develop self-esteem. Skills taught within the safe school environment, and most importantly on trips out of the school, teach our children how to achieve tasks that others normally consider as easy.

Our aim is to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of our pupils, preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
