School Description

Hope View is an independent day special school, which opened in November 2007. The school is located in Chilham, a village close to Canterbury in Kent. The school is owned and operated by Carmichael Education Ltd. The company was founded by the headteacher and her husband, who is the deputy headteacher. The school is registered for up to 60 boys between the ages of seven and 18 years. Pupils Inspection report: Hope View School, 25–27 June 2019 Page 8 of 11 have behavioural, emotional and social difficulties, and autism spectrum disorder. There are currently 58 pupils on roll. Nine are looked after by their local authorities and in foster care in the vicinity of the school. All pupils have an education, health and care plan. They are placed at the schools by various local authorities. The school does not use alternative provision. However, pupils regularly attend registered providers locally, such as Chalkhill Farm and Catch 22, as part of the curriculum and post16 provision provided by the school. The school aims to provide ‘a learning environment which encourages the highest level of personal attainment and achievement so that all individuals fulfil their potential’. The school’s last standard inspection took place in September 2016, when its overall effectiveness was judged good. The school’s quality assurance team was established in January 2019 and provides governance for the school. Pupils go on to attend a number of colleges of further education when they leave the school, including East- and Mid-Kent Colleges and Canterbury College.
