School Description

This small independent special school occupies a detached house, adapted suitably with classrooms, kitchen and dining area and staff office. A safe fenced-off garden behind the school is available for use by students at break and lunchtimes. The school is registered to admit up to three students aged from 10 to 18 years. However, no students of sixth form age have been admitted since the last inspection. Students start in the school at different ages and at different times in the year. Most start in Years 9 and 10 and typically remain at the school until the end of Year 11. Students placed at the school have behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. At the time of the inspection, no students had statements of special educational needs. No disabled students currently attend the school. The school is overseen by the headteacher, who oversees other schools in the group. A designated lead teacher for education takes responsibility for students in the school. The school does not have middle managers. The school does not use training at places away from school. Since the last inspection there have been several changes of proprietor. The headteacher has been in post for the last year. The school was previously inspected in December 2011 when all the independent school regulations were met.
