School Description

Teresa House is an independent special school situated in a rural setting on the north Wales coast. The school provides education, care and therapy for pupils aged 11 to 18 years. It is owned by Care4Children, a specialist children’s services agency that has ten independent special schools across England and Wales. Pupils who attend Teresa House are all residents in the linked children’s home that shares the site. The headteacher has been in post since the school was established in 2015. The headteacher also has a teaching role and is supported by a small number of tutors at the school. The school’s last annual monitoring visit was in November 2018. This is the first core inspection of the school. As there are fewer than five pupils at the school, inspectors did not give a judgement for standards or wellbeing and attitudes to learning. This is because the number of pupils was too few to report on without identifying individual pupils. Further information is available from the Welsh Government My Local School website at the link below. http://mylocalschool.wales.gov.uk/Schools/SchoolSearch?lang=en 1 A report on Teresa House March 2020 Summary The school provides a very high quality of education and care, support and guidance for pupils.
