Ours is a community of learning, where secure partnerships create opportunities for students to participate and grow to become intellectually, emotionally and socially fit for life.

Our curriculum is highly individualised, responsive and rich; it is focused on the promotion of communication, emotional development, resilience, and the development of personal and social skills.

We place a significant emphasis on enrichment and activity, it’s positive impact on developing independence, cognitive functioning, emotional literacy, mental health and self-esteem.

As students progress through school the focus is on preparation for an extensive range of accredited routes and transition into a range of pathways to FE, training or employment.
