Our school and homes are set in a tranquil, rural setting with 14 acres of grounds which supports our highly therapeutic waking day curriculum that is tailored to the needs and interests of each individual student following a differentiated National Curriculum within school and a primary focus on life and social skills in the homes. We are a registered Forest School and make much use of our extensive grounds and woodland for multisensory learning and leisure opportunities. We pride ourselves in our warm and friendly environment which we maintain to nurture and value every individual through positive interactions and recognition of achievements, whether small or significant.
We have well-qualified and experienced school and home staff teams, whose focus is on person-centred active support, guiding and helping each individual to achieve their own personal potential and level of independence. We have a therapy team which includes a Speech and Language therapist, Psychologist and Occupational Therapist.
Currently, our on-site facilities include: Soft play room, sensory rooms, cinema, playgrounds with play equipment, Coach House, Woodland area, Forest School sites, including: camp fire areas, earth oven, pond, sensory garden, walled garden, Trampoline area, Farm Shop and outdoor activity classroom.
We are committed to preparing our children for their next stages of life, in particular to be able to use a more ‘functional level of communication’ and to be better emotionally prepared to live with as much independence as possible.
