School Description

The Nook is a small independent school for girls aged 11 to 16 years. The school is one of eight schools owned and operated by Hexagon Care Services in the North West. The chief executive of the company acts as the proprietor. The school has not been previously inspected. A pre-registration inspection took place at the school in February 2019. The school caters for pupils with complex needs including social, emotional and mental health difficulties. All pupils attending the school are vulnerable and in the care of local authorities. Inspection report: The Nook, 14–15 May 2019 Page 7 of 10 All pupils currently in the school have an education, health and care plan. The school shares a site with a children’s home owned by Hexagon Care Services. Pupils from the home attend The Nook School. Pupils return to the children’s home at break and lunchtimes. Due to the vulnerable nature of pupils, the school does not have its own internet website. The school produces a prospectus and makes this and all necessary safeguarding and policy information available on request. Due to the nature of the provision and the circumstances in which the pupils find themselves, the school does not publish direct contact details. Any correspondence or contact with the school is directed through the company’s head office. The school does not make use of any alternative providers.
