Success Stories

Knowsley College Sensory Room


Knowsley Community College approached Rompa in early 2016 to develop a sensory room that met the wide range of needs of the students for a new campus opening September of that year. Working together we developed a fantastic Snoezelen Multi-Sensory Environment that is loved by both students and teaching staff.

"The room is used by profoundly disabled people many of whom do not communicate with others. They come into the sensory room and they are like completely different people. People who are hard to engage and connect with come into the room and come out of their shell."

The Yard Sensory Room


Rompa are very proud to have been involved in helping BBC Children in Need as part of a BBC 1 special programme: “DIY SOS: The Big Build”. The programme featured the renovation of a centre for children with additional needs in Edinburgh. The Yard helps children and young people from 3 to 25. It is an indoor and outdoor space that welcomes the whole family.

This year the centre celebrates 25 years of helping families deal with the demands of daily life, giving the young people a space to develop their confidence and encouraging them to make lasting friendships. The Yard receives a grant towards its costs from BBC Children in Need, but the building and its outdoor space were in desperate need of a total overhaul. Rompa donated a state of the art Sensory Room to BBC Children in Need that can aid relaxation or stimulation according to the users needs.

Pennyman Primary School


Pennyman Primary School in Middlesbrough approached Rompa looking for our expertise to help guide them with the development of a big Sensory project. They were planning to convert an unused hydrotherapy area into a Snoezelen environment which could help many children with a wide range of Special Educational Needs, but did not know where to start or what could be done with the unusual shaped room.

After an initial consultation with the Head of the school, the team at Rompa got together and came up with some initial ideas based on the facts that had come out. Gemma Cooke, the designer at Rompa translated their comments into a stunning design which was shown to Pennyman in a detailed 3D graphic design. It was clear however that something wasn’t quite right and that the staff, children and community wanted more for their room.

Always happy to help Rompa again made the journey up to Middlesborough to discuss how we could give them what they wanted. The “Eureka” moment came when Mrs. Christine Watson said that they wanted a Sensory room like no one else in the area and that it had to have the “wow” factor

Positive Play Support Programme


From a simple meeting with Derbyshire County Council many years ago the foundations were laid for this groundbreaking project.

This unique programme is conducted in a ‘Magic Room’ and a ‘Rainbow Room’ with Snoezelen facilities and principles. It’s main objective is using structured play and activities designed to raise the feeling of self worth for children and young people, from those with autism, aspergers syndrome, low self esteem to those with challenging behaviours.

Fast forward 10 years and our partnership continues to this day from developing new resources and kits to creating new sensory environments all aimed at improving children’s emotional and behavioural well being.

We are proud to be part of this success story.

“Taking part in Positive Play Support has changed many children’s lives. They feel better about themselves, get on better with other children and their work at school improves.” - Dr Janet Empson
