The School House Cafe has been set up by Spa School to provide work experience for its pupils, all of whom have a diagnosis of autism.
Older pupils at Spa School help run the cafe, supported by staff from the school and Rossana the cafe manager. They get a chance to learn a range of skills useful in future employment.
All key stage 5 pupils from Spa have an opportunity to work in the cafe, at the level that is right for them. Some work in the staff area while others enjoy working front of house.
The cafe is open to the public daily from 8:45am until 3:15pm, Monday to Friday, term-time only. Come and try our delicious coffee, cakes and lunch-time treats.
