Student Stories

Afonso

Afonso likes sport and in particular football. He is a very keen, enthusiastic and resilient young man with a cheeky sense of humour who is studying GCSE maths and science. He has aspirations to go on to sixth form college. In the longer term Afonso would like to get a job – his career goal is to work managing a football team – and live as independently as possible. Afonso has always had highly complex communication and physical needs as he has cerebral palsy. He uses a manual wheelchair and also a standing frame. He relies on adult support for all his positioning, feeding and care needs. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE


Ella

Ella has an inherited disorder of bone growth and is wheelchair bound. She joined Treloar School in 2008 when she was 11 years old. When she arrived, she lacked confidence with people she didn’t know and would only respond to those she felt comfortable to be around. Through the work of her multi-disciplinary team, which includes her house staff, Ella’s confidence has come on leaps and bounds and she is now a poised 18 year old who, whilst still a Treloar School student, is studying toward an Animal Management Course Level 3 at Sparsholt College in Winchester. She has applied to UCAS to do a Foundation degree in Animal Management at Sparsholt; her plan is to attend college on a full time basis and she is starting to learn to drive a car so she can commute between home and college.
