The Llewellyn School-Big Build
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
December 2015 unexpectedly saw the closure of The Royal School for Deaf Children in Margate leaving many children with complex needs without a suitable school placement. This had a major impact on families and children, not only in the local area but countrywide.
Anthony Curwen, Managing Director of Quex Park Estate has very generously come to the rescue offering a plot of land to build a single storey, timber framed school within their grounds. On 14th February 2018 planning permission was granted, with a unanimous vote for the new school to go ahead! The school is called Llewellyn School and Nursery.
Linked to the school is also a registered charity, Louie's Helping Hands, Charity No 1167225. Louie's Helping Hands supports the children who attend the School and Nursery by providing some of the valuable therapies the children require. Therapies like Hydrotherapy, Horse Riding, Art & Music sessions. Combined these contribute to the children's wellbeing, by building core strength and muscle tone whilst also increasing confidence and independence. Louie's Helping Hands also purchases specialist equipment the children require at school.
