Leeds special educational needs students open pop-up shop in Kirkgate Market

Compass House shop in Kirkgate Market

By Richard Liddle

Five Leeds schools for students with special educational needs and disabilities have joined together to run a pop-up shop in Kirkgate Market.

The shop, named Compass House, is stocked with Christmas gifts made by the students, who have also been involved with planning and running the stall as a way to gain valuable work experience.

This is the third time the students have run the stall, which first opened in December 2018 and returned in July.

Compass House involves students from Lighthouse School and the East, West, North West and Broomfield Specialist Inclusive Learning Centres (SILCs), and is open December 2-6 from 10am-2pm.
