The school, in White City, London, caters for children who have severe learning difficulties and disabilities. The £1.2m state-of-the-art facility is the first of its kind in the borough, and will help children develop communication, interpersonal, cognitive and physical skills.
The Prime Minister, whose son, Ivan, attended the school, said: “These special schools play such an important role and I know that so many parents are incredibly grateful for the work that they do. When Ivan was here, Jack Tizard was such a huge support and I am delighted to be here on such a special day.”
Apollo’s Managing Director of Education said: ”We were really pleased to have the opportunity to work on such a worthwhile and rewarding project and to be able to show the Prime Minister the results of our team’s work.”
Councillor Helen Binmore, Hammersmith and Fulham’s cabinet member for children’s services, said: “The hydrotherapy pool looks fantastic and the children and young people should have a great time in the water. This is a wonderful new asset for the borough and I hope pupils will enjoy and benefit from this sensory learning experience.”
