The DofE Marina Project Little Deer Wood Shepley Bridge Huddersfield Road Mirfield WF14 9HR.


Activities will run from Tuesday – Friday from  25 July – 11 August 10.30 – 3.30 daily.


WACKY has created unique opportunities for young people with disabilities over the school holidays for the past thirteen years.  There are ten different opportunities to choose from each day where young people can explore and enjoy the great outdoors using Little Deer Wood Activity Centre which offers accessible adventure and play for children and young people of all abilities. NEW for this year the accessible low ropes course!


There are also opportunities to become involved in arts, crafts, sports, music, dance and drama projects which are very popular and have helped to make WACKY a fun and exciting way to spend the summer.

10 Year Celebration

Here at school we enjoyed our 10 Year Celebration on Friday 26th May.

It was a great day and friends, both new and old helped us celebrate. The weather was fantastic and the sun shone throughout!

We enjoyed a dove release to mark the event and we also gathered items for our time capsule.

Our students enjoyed a variety of fun activities including a visit from Shabang, Ian’s Mobile Farm, The Fantastic Jazz Band, Qdos Dance Troupe and much more. We hope you enjoy the photographs of the day. More will be added in the near future.
