We are committed to providing our pupils with a caring, positive and welcoming learning environment where they can achieve their full potential in their education and develop their social communication.
Our broad curriculum allows pupils to pursue both academic and vocational paths allowing individuals to strive in their areas of strength.
Our Integrated Therapeutic Offer allows us to provide sector leading standards of education, therapeutic support and care for small groups of young people, all on one site. This approach mirrors that of a traditional children’s home and school relationship, but considers the additional support required by young people with significant special educational needs. The young people will live in a children’s home located on-site. These purpose built homes provide an extremely high quality living experience for young people.
We offer a complete package of residential care, in conjunction with our on-site learning centre, that consistently allows children to realise their potential, both academically and socially. Each young person is closely supported throughout their school day and home life. There are strong links between the children’s home and learning centre to ensure the best possible outcomes are achieved for each young person and that all of their social, educational and therapeutic needs are met. The unique characteristic of an integrated provision is the delivery of ‘wrap around’ care, education and therapy to all young people, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
