Community Links

We are proud of the numerous links we have within the very vibrant community of Peckham, and London as a whole. The school is positioned close to markets, a library, cafes and local shops. Pupils access local swimming pools, sports centres, and visit museums and art galleries. We work with other arts organisations on a regular basis, such the Bow Arts Trust and Southwark Playhouse.>

Accessibility

Cherry Garden School is fully wheelchair accessible and was designed with the needs of the pupils in mind. There are lifts, hoists, fully accessible bathrooms and hand rails throughout the school. Many of the appliances and furniture are height adjustable to accommodate pupils in wheelchairs or other specialist seating and we have a wide range of adapted equipment to support all areas of the curriculum.

We have a full-size trampoline installed into the floor of our trampoline room for Rebound Therapy, allowing much easier access for all pupils than a standard trampoline.>

We use specialised coaches which have wheelchair lifts for travel to and from regular activities and also for class trips.
