We will give all of our students the very best opportunities to pursue a future of their choice in a safe and welcoming environment.
We will equip our students with the necessary skills and qualifications to become happy and confident independent people and give them the support they need in order to successfully transition to further education or employment
We believe it is important for students to achieve their full potential and progress to a future of their choice, to ensure this we offer a rich and stimulating curriculum, individually tailored to our student’s needs, supported by strong pastoral care, social and emotional support and various therapies. Our small adapted environment allows us to break down any barriers to learning and support individuals needs. We will ensure they are provided with the skills and qualifications necessary to achieve their goals and be celebrated along the way. We will reflect good practice in an environment that supports our students learning.
In meeting our goals, we have developed some key objectives that provide focus for the way the school works:
