Students graduate from London Fire Brigade’s LIFE course

Two Year 10 students from YPA, William and Ethan, recently graduated from the London Fire Brigade’s Local Intervention Fire Education (LIFE) course. This is an interactive experience for young people who have faced challenges, to learn transferable skills through fire fighting activities.

The boys spent 4 days at Wembley fire station undertaking a variety of duties and training exercises to replicate the working week of a fire fighter. Both boys successfully ‘passed out’ and received their certificates at the Passing Out ceremony on Thursday 11th October.

The school had further reason to celebrate when William received the Jack Petchey award for the most outstanding student on the course, a fantastic achievement. Well done boys!

 

 

YPA has a good understanding and built a rapport with my son. He has been happy and well cared for to the point where he has met his full potential and thrived. The right balance and structure has provided for my son’s complex needs. Thank you for your continuous support.  Parent
