Massage Sessions

Massage therapy sessions are available to book on Saturdays with Zoe the massage & sports & exercise rehabilitation therapist, who also works within Hadrian School. Those who do rebound therapy sessions will recognise Zoe from Saturday’s. Massage sessions will be available to block book each month directly through Zoe. These sessions will be held in a room within our rebound therapy centre.

Massage sessions will involve massage & stretching techniques led by the child/ adult receiving the massage. Each session will be adapted to each individual. Massage can aid circulation, alleviate muscle pain, encourage relaxation, increase range of motion, improve sleep, decrease un-wanted behaviours and so much more.

Parents & carers will sit in the room whilst the massages take place.

Each 45-minute session will cost £30.

Email Zoe with your child’s name, 3 dates you’d like to book your child in, your preferred time & any further information you may need.



The Rob Armstrong Rebound Therapy Centre

This new bespoke Rebound Therapy Training Centre was opened in February 2018 by our generous Patron Rob Armstrong. The centre has been going from strength to strength and now offers rebound sessions on evenings/holidays/ and weekends.

The main centre consists of 5 trampolines, and has overhead tracking covering the entire space making it fully accessible to both able bodied and physically disabled  children/adults. Within the centre there is also a series of ‘sensory stations’ which are also fully accessible.

There is a brand new Dance/Music Studio as well as a new Training Suite which is able to host up to 30 delegates.

What is Rebound Therapy?

The phrase “Rebound Therapy” describes the use of trampolines in providing therapeutic exercise and recreation for people with a wide range of special needs. These include participants who may have profound and complex learning difficulties, severe and moderate learning difficulties, ASD and motor coordination difficulties, dual sensory impairments or sensory processing difficulties.

Rebound Therapy is used to facilitate movement, promote balance, promote an increase or decrease in muscle tone, promote relaxation, promote sensory integration, improve fitness and to improve communication skills.

Rebound Therapy Sessions

Our sessions are open access to parents/carers from around the region and the session are appropriate for children and adults who are abled bodied and physically disabled.

All of the sessions are facilitated by experienced Hadrian School staff who are all trained as Rebound Therapy Coaches accredited with One Awards. Staff are also all first aid trained.

What do I have to do to access a session?

There is a pre-course questionnaire to complete prior to attending any sessions so we can access the characteristics of the child/adults disability, this helps us to ensure the sessions that is delivered is safe/beneficial and enjoyable.

Please Request and Return the questionnaire FAO David Palmer – Business Manager via

As Hadrian School staff are supervising/facilitating the sessions we are happy for parents/carers to participate in the sessions. We also offer the opportunity for parents/carers to access the 2 day Rebound Therapy for SEN Training Course. On completion of the course candidates are awarded a level 2 accredited certificate qualifying them as a rebound therapy coach, enabling them to supervise and facilitate their own sessions.

How much are the sessions?

All sessions are priced at £15.00 for week day and weekends. We encourage people to make block bookings of either a half term or full term as this will ensure you keep an allocated time slots. (For example a 7 week half term for 1 slot would be £105).

Each session lasts approx. 30-40 minutes depending on the nature/characteristics/disability of the child/adult taking part.

Please note prices will increase from the 1st May 2022 to £15 per session. With price increases across the board with utilities, and our additional staffing costs with COVID charging £10 per session we are actually loosing money so the sessions are not cost effective.

Who do I get in touch with to book a session?
