Pupils give up their lunch breaks in order to train for the national Wheelchair Dance Association Festival, where they compete against teams from across England and Scotland.

Staff at the school have seen pupils' emotional well being improved, their ability to concentrate extended and their social skills develop.

The school also works with disabled pupils who attend local mainstream schools. The children are invited to join an after-school dance club on Friday afternoons, where they can socialise with other pupils as well as learning to dance.
