School Description

VTSS provides a haven for pupils who have experienced trauma and who need to learn in a supportive and therapeutic environment. All pupils who attend the school live in the children’s home, which is operated by the same proprietor. The school has been designed to feel like an extension of home for the pupils who attend. Pupils learn in very small classes with high levels of adult support. Pupils follow an individual curriculum that incorporates both therapy and learning. Pupils have often struggled at school in the past and they appreciate how teaching staff and therapeutic staff have supported them to re-engage with school life. They begin to develop a most positive attitude to learning. Pupils enjoy the large garden and multi-use games area where their physical education takes place, but where they can also spend time socialising. Pupils particularly enjoy the opportunities they have to study art and to create their own artworks. Most recently, pupils have enjoyed working in clay. They designed and created their own ceramic tiles before moving on to create three-dimensional works such as bird feeders. Pupils feel very proud of their accomplishments in art.
