Residential Care

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.  The students’ bedrooms have all recently been renovated to a very high standard and offer en-suite accommodation with digital key access for each student.  Kitchen facilities and lounges in each house are designed to encourage independence and social living.

 

 

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 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)
