A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School


Huntercombe Hospital
Huntercombe Lane South

School Description

Students enjoy school; they say, ‘I like doing schoolwork – it acts as a break away from the fact that you are in hospital; it is probably the most normal part of being an inpatient.’ Staff have high expectations of students and they gently encourage them to try their best in every lesson. Students consider that the belief and constant encouragement from staff really helps their recovery. Students behave well, and lessons proceed calmly and quietly. Students are usually engrossed in their work. They either work in small groups with teachers or work on the computer completing work set by their home school. Most students are keen to keep up with their studies. They want to be well prepared for when they transition back into mainstream school full time. Students, including those who are in the secure unit, say that they feel safe and secure in the school. Bullying of any sort is rare and the school deals with any incidents effectively. Leaders ensure that students have a good understanding of the different forms of bullying, including prejudice-based bullying. It has recently won an award for this work with a nationally recognised charity.
