School Description

Pupils of all ages feel happy, supported and well cared for. They say, ‘You can be yourself – school is very inclusive.’ Learning in small classes enables pupils to get to know their teachers well. Pupils have personalised plans that enable them to reengage in learning and enjoy school life. Many pupils experience academic success. Pupils feel safe. Bullying is rare. Pupils receive good pastoral and therapeutic care, which helps promote their good behaviour. Incidents of misbehaviour are carefully managed by trained staff. Pupils learn to stay safe and gain essential life skills needed for adulthood. Pupils learn to communicate and interact with others in the best way they can. Pupils also learn about healthy relationships, diversity and British values. Pupils’ lives are enriched by the curriculum and a wide range of extra activities and special events. Pupils thrive personally and socially through outdoor learning and caring for animals on the school farm. Students in the small sixth form receive the same quality of personalised education and care. They are well prepared for the next stage of their lives.
