A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School


School Description

Face Youth Therapeutic School provides full-time education for boys and girls with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties from 11 to 16 years of age. The school first opened in September 2007 and was registered as an independent school in November 2013. The school is situated in South Wimbledon, in the London Borough of Merton. The premises are rented from the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) and are used for YMCA activities after school has finished. The building is also used for church services on Sundays. There are currently nine students on roll between 14 and 16 years of age, from a variety of cultural backgrounds. Eight students have a statement of special educational needs related to their behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. Most have had a disrupted education and many have been excluded from mainstream schools or were non-attenders in previous settings. Some students receive alternative provision at South Thames College, Lambeth College or Carshalton College. The school uses off-site provision for physical education at a local leisure centre. The school has no specific religious affiliation. There is a sole proprietor. There is no Chair of Governors nor a governing board. The headteacher is accountable directly to the proprietor. The school aims to ‘provide a caring and encouraging environment for young people to achieve their full potential’. This was the school’s first standard inspection.
