We were lucky to have worked hard and secured some considerable investment for the residential facilities at Marland. The staff and students helped design the upper residential building and the ground floor has some great facilities. We have a games room with pool tables, table football, table tennis and darts. We have a fully equipped training kitchen, where students can prepare meals for themselves and others. We have a movie room with the largest TV staff have ever seen! Further spaces include a quiet lounge with Lego, board games, puzzles and Scalextric, a further lounge area, a computer room, a music room, and a console lounge. All of these are used by all students during structured activities. In the lower residential area, we have two social spaces that are used by the younger students, a quiet room, and a games room.
We also have some spaces that are shared between the education day and the care time, these include a large indoor sports hall, a gym, a motor vehicle workshop where we maintain our own motorbikes, a further kitchen area and another hall with pool and table tennis. We also have plenty of outdoor spaces including some school woods about a 5 minute drive away, a motorbike and go-kart track, a grass football pitch and a smaller muga as well as a tennis court, a horticultural area and plenty of spaces to throw a ball around and generally have some fun.
