FACT – FACT stands for fun and collaborative teamwork. The club is a safe space for students with SEND, full of wonderful characters and personalities with all sorts of different interests. The club is held every Thursday lunchtime in L2 and run by Miss Lucero (with the help of our 6th form ambassadors!) with different activities planned for each week. Hear what our students have to say!
I like FACT because it is fun!!! For example, last week we did a team-building challenge: Who can build the tallest and sturdy tower with the materials given to us.you can also get the chance to make new friends and just socialise with other people who also attend the club. We also did other fun and cool things such as: Origami, we watched The Shrek movie and played some games like ‘Werewolf’. One of my favourite activities was the origami one because I like doing paper crafts, it was quite engaging and I like Japanese culture!! 🙂 😀
I love FACT because it is really fun and inclusive. It’s a chance for everyone to get together and just relax. It’s a really great environment!
Fact is a safe space for people of all different neurodiversity types to enjoy lots of different and awesome activities which include things such as baking and decorating, art, story games, watching movies and team activities. Everyone there is so friendly and such lovely people, I always feel safe and accepted!
I think fact is the most fantastic club to meet new people and make amazing friends, as well as doing really fun things! I love it so much. <333
I like FACT because cheesecake and bazookas randomly appear in conversations. There are a lot of nice people and the activities we do are really fun.
I like FACT because we do fun and different things every lesson. Sometimes we get to decide on what we do next. We’ve done a variety of different things for example we did origami, watched a movie, painted rocks, colouring, who could build the tallest tower out of a certain amount of things, wrapping people in toilet paper as well as many other things.
I like fact because it is fun. Fact is interactive and we do lots of interesting activities. I like fact because no one will judge anyone else and you can be yourself. I love fact because everyone has something in common. I like fact because the words cheesecake and BAZOOKA randomly come up in conversation.
I like fact because it is fun and it is a fun way to waste time
and it is interesting
I enjoy Fact because it is welcoming to all people and is just really fun especially if you are stressed or worried about anything. It’s also easy to find people with the same interests; which then makes it easy to make more friends as well! We are all very inclusive and fun, as people alone but even more as a community. No one is rude or unwelcoming, and everyone is patient with each other too. We’ve made many inside jokes as well. Overall, Fact is just a really nice group of funny, nice and just amazing people.
FACT is really fun.
Its such a good space.
I look forward to going on Thursdays.
The activities are so much fun and it’s always really enjoyable.
It’s nice to meet at least once a week and just relax.
I like fact because it is fun and we can socialise and do calming activities like painting colouring and drawing. Also there are a lot of people here so i can make new friends and i can see old ones aswell. Everyone is really nice and it makes me feel happy and excited. Since Miss Lucero introduced me to fact after a meeting i have had fun at every session and you and Lucy work so hard to make every session fun and this club makes me feel like i belong here at AHS thxx so much
I really enjoy FACT because it acts as a chilled, laid-back space where I don’t have to deal with the struggles and stresses of year 11. It’s always fun, with combinations of activities, games and even movies! I look forward to FACT every week, partly because of the kind people I have met, and also because it gives me the opportunity to just relax and enjoy myself. I’ve been going since year 7 and loved it every year.
