Secondary School

Going to secondary school is an exciting time in your life. It can also be complicated sometimes. Being a young person who is blind or partially sighted can throw up a few extra challenges along the way, but with the right steps and support these bumps in the road can be overcome and you can make the most out of your time at school.

That’s why we have created some handy resources for you to check out which will help you on your way; including topics such as the things you need to know when starting school, who is there to support you, getting around independently, information to help you make the right moves towards the job you want to do and much more…

This is also a great place for parents and education professionals to find resources to help support young blind and partially sighted people through their studies at secondary school.
