School Description

One pupil described Cressex Lodge as, ‘The most inclusive place you will ever visit.’ Staff, pupils, parents and carers agree. Pupils live up to staff’s high expectations. Relationships are warm and respectful. The atmosphere around the school is harmonious. Pupils are extremely thoughtful and considerate of others and lessons are rarely disrupted. Pupils feel safe and happy. They talk knowledgably about different faiths, cultures and religions. Pupils told inspectors that there is no place for bullying, harassment or discrimination. Pupils love taking part in the number of activities on offer. They particularly look forward to the sports, gardening, guitar, keyboard and ukulele clubs. Trips to art galleries, museums, concerts, theatres and places of worship broaden pupils’ horizons. Pupils organise litter picks in the community and volunteer in a local care home. Several pupils told inspectors that the school had simply transformed their lives. Leaders make sure that all pupils learn that they have control over their futures. Staff want pupils to be independent, build trusting relationships and succeed. Pupils have a voice in making decisions about school life. They worked successfully with leaders to design and develop the forest school, meditation area and the popular ‘Safari Lodge’.
