The centre provides specialist education facilities dedicated to the specific needs of students with complex learning and physical disabilities. Foundation staff deliver a combination of education and sport sessions as well as bespoke training and enterprise programmes to a range of organisations – including Oakleigh Special School, where Daryl attends.

The weekly sessions involving the specialist sensory and rebound therapy rooms have allowed Daryl to engage more confidently than ever before with fellow students and staff, making a huge difference to his life.

Nikita, Daryl’s teacher at Oakleigh School, said: “The specialist sessions run by Tottenham Hotspur have been amazing for Daryl and we’re able to see the full benefit from using these brilliant facilities.”
