We work in partnership with parents, carers and other professionals as we recognise the importance of a collaborative approach to supporting the needs of children and young people in order to achieve the best possible outcomes.
A skilled and diverse staff team will listen to and support pupils as they overcome any barriers they have to learning and provide a range of therapeutic support. We aim to develop the pupil as a whole, broadening their knowledge, celebrating diversity and developing an understanding of the wider world..
We also ensure there is successful transition into each pupils next stages of education or employment and will equip students with a range of academic and social skills for life.
