Yesterday, young people around the country got their A level results - congratulations to everyone who worked so hard.
It made us think about the first students to graduate from No Limits Bedfordshire in July. As they finished their first academic year students, parents and staff celebrated the first graduation in Cotton End.
We are all very proud of the students and how much they progressed over the year.
One such student is Amanda*:
Amanda had been supported 2:1 in school and was not included in any of the group lessons. During her first term with No Limits we developed a communication system that enabled Amanda to make active choices in her day and have control of how, where and what she was learning.
This in turn made Amanda more secure and confident in her learning and, by using a communication method that made sense to her, Amanda was not only able to join in group sessions with peers, but also made friends with other learners.
*Not her real name
