School Description

The Retreat is an independent day school for up to four pupils a day aged 11 to 18. The school provides education for girls who have been the victims of trauma. It offers an extensive therapy programme to run alongside the educational provision. This is the first inspection of the school. It was registered with the Department for Education in May 2017. The director of education oversees provision in other independent day schools operated by Care4Children. He is also the proprietor of the school. Previously, the school’s proprietor was described as Care4Children. This is a change to the school details that has Inspection report: The Retreat, 3–5 July 2018 Page 9 of 12 been reported to the DfE by the proprietor. The director of education/proprietor is supported in his role by Care4Children’s head of education. The school is situated in a rural location. It is housed in two adjacent classrooms. The aim of the school is to meet the specific needs of their pupils and their educational and personal development. The school’s vision statement expresses an aim to be ‘persistent in our ambitions for children’ and to provide a structured learning programme over 24 months to support pupils’ personal and academic development. Planned admissions to the school may include pupils who have statements of special educational needs and/or disabilities or those in receipt of an education, health and care plan. Through experience in other schools, the proprietor has established good links with a range of local authorities who fund the provision for pupils. Pupils have horse riding lessons at a local equestrian centre and use a local leisure centre for physical education lessons.

The Retreat Catchment Area Map

This school is independently managed and its admission criteria may be selective. There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK. Contact the school directly or visit their website for more information on Admissions Policy and Procedures.
