Our residential care provsion

The school and residential facilities are set within 20 acres of parkland including a fishing lake, woodland, sports fields and an outdoor fitness trail and play equipment.   

Resident students live in one of five houses based within the grounds, and are supported by a dedicated team of experienced and highly qualified residential staff.

All of the houses have a welcoming, ‘homely’ feel.  All students have their own rooms which have all recently been renovated to a very high standard and offer en-suite accommodation with digital key access for each student.  Students are encouraged to personalise their rooms with items from home. Kitchen facilities and lounges in each house are designed to encourage family style living, independence and opportunities for socialising.

In the majority of cases, keyworkers for each resident student and their family will be a member of the residential house staff team.

Students are able to keep their bedroom for the duration of their placement at school.

 

 

My son has thrived since boarding in the school as he has an individualised programme in every way.

We offer a ‘waking day’ curriculum to all students, which includes the school’s bespoke ‘Independence Plus’ curriculum as well as a range of on and offsite activities. These tap into the special interests of the students, promote social inclusion and provide a structured support for the development of independence and life-skills.

The ‘waking day‘ curriculum also offers students opportunities to achieve certification in a wide range of activities such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award, climbing, cycling, football coaching, sailing and swimming, to name but a few.

Each boarding house has a warm and nurturing atmosphere and environment within which young people relax together and enjoy time with each other. (Ofsted)
