Gimme A Break - Winchelsea School

Currently we are not offering youth club sessions nor short break holiday activities face to face due to COVID-19 restrictions.  We will, however, be offering further on-line activities over October half term.  Please request to join our BCP Council Short Breaks Facebook group as all on-line activities will be scheduled there.  For further information please contact

Is your child aged 12 or more and would like to spend time having fun with friends and making new friends in a safe environment?

We run a youth club at Winchelsea School on Friday evening between 7.00pm and 9.00pm.

Gimme-A-Break is a youth club run at Winchelsea School aimed specifically at young people aged 12 or over with disabilities. The club is run by Gimme-A-Break which is a not for profit organisation and is staffed by support workers who are experienced in working with SEN children.

We are prepared to be flexible regarding the upper age limit and will review this on a case by case basis. All attendees must have SEN.
