Aims & Ethos
"To lead in the importance of nurturing well-being to unlock a wealth of learning excellence"
An Independent Special School facilitating an innovative nurturing education for young people aged 11-16 years who do not connect with a mainstream offer. We provide day, weekly and termly places in our sought after homely environment.
Our specialism is ‘well-being’ opening up an educational opportunity to young people who suffer from issues surrounding anxiety. Our Students do not need to be diagnosed with a related condition, though many of our students are recognised as being on the autistic spectrum.
We are an independent special school that supports the inclusion agenda of Stoke on Trents schools and the Alternative pathways LA service. We currently provide a complimentary service to extend, enhance, assess or integrate students usually into mainstream school. We work in partnership with all local services to maximise young persons experience and outcomes. To achieve this we are listening to young peoples views and wishes of a"happy school" and learning from local and national research into helping those with additional needs "stay in education".
In the meantime if you would like further information about our sessional places please contact the local Alternative pathways team or our office.
We provide an educational community that is rich in aspiration, innovative and nurturing. Through bespoke teaching and evidence-based strategies, enabling our students to emerge as emotionally secure, skilled and resilient young adults.
'Childhood education is a precious time that should be fun and nurturing. It is our mission to empower and inspire learners to enjoy education and seek their own true potential'
