School Description

The school is located within Pennine House, which is in the grounds of Fairfield Hospital, Bury. The school provides education for pupils who are inpatients receiving treatment in the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service units at Pennine House. Pupils have severe and acute health and psychological needs. Pupils attend the school from a variety of local authorities. However, most pupils are from Inspection report: Pennine House School, 3–5 July 2018 Page 9 of 12 local authorities within Greater Manchester. The school is run by Priory Education and Children’s Services, which runs a nationwide chain of schools, colleges and children’s homes. The proprietor has been educating pupils at Pennine House for approximately 10 years. However, the proprietor formally registered the provision as an independent school with the Department for Education in 2016. This is the school’s first standard inspection. The school aims to raise pupils’ self-esteem, increase their confidence and help them to either return to their original school, college or employer, or advance to an appropriate destination that meets their needs. The average length of stay at the school varies widely and the number of pupils on roll fluctuates daily. Many pupils spend a few weeks at the school, whereas others stay for over a year. Due to the high turnover of pupils, the age range of pupils varies significantly throughout the year, as does the ratio of male to female pupils. A small number of pupils are looked after, and a small number have an education, health and care plan. The school does not use any alternative provision.
