Hello, I'm running the Bath Half Marathon this year in support of Lily's amazing school Three Ways. The school has made such a vast difference to Lily's way of life and future prospects and we are truly grateful to have such a recognised facility close to home.

Please read on further information about the school and its current campaign. Thanks Mark

Three Ways School want to update and add to the play and gym equipment they have outside the classroom and we need your help.

Three Ways School is a Special Needs Academy in Bath and NE Somerset offering a unique, stimulating learning environment to over 220 pupils with learning difficulties and disabilities aged 3-19. At Three Ways School we’re making a difference to young people with learning difficulties and disabilities every day.

Our students receive personalised care and support throughout the school day but it is extremely hard for them to access mainstream clubs, resources and activities in the communities. The students at Three Ways need a higher level of specialist staff support to access activities and this makes the provision much more expensive than mainstream provision.

We receive government funding for core curriculum teaching, but that doesn’t cover ambitious extra projects. However, we are determined not to let that stand in our way of giving our students access to new experiences, to developing passions and hobbies, to being part of a team and giving parents and carers much needed care and respite – an opportunity this community deserve as much as any other school child.

Playtime is often a difficult time for young people with additional needs. Unstructured play times can sometimes be challenging for our young people, so we are always looking for positive ways to engage them in play. We try to minimise this with a lot of choices of activities and stimulating play. In order to do this better we need to invest in new wheelchair accessible and young adult engaging equipment for the outside areas!

We would like to install some new play equipment and update some old to make sure that everyone has something they can and are interested in playing with. The whole project will cost over £25,000 so anything you are able to donate towards this will be amazing, thank you!
