About us

Our school offers specialist provision for children and young people with social, emotional and mental health needs.


We are situated within a unique, unmistakable and engaging urban forest campus, set along a very active Wildlife Centre, with good transport access. We are able to offer a comprehensive package of both academic and pastoral support to meet the complex needs of young people who have ‘Social, Emotional and Mental Health’ needs.


Our school is a successful and happy one, where pupils feel valued and learn to take responsibility for themselves and others. We are blessed with children of many different age groups.


All pupils benefit from:

  • in-house catering
  • a multi-purpose sports hall, with space and equipment to host 5-a-side football, badminton, basketball, gymnastics and much more
  • a design technology suite
  • a food technology room
  • science labs
  • an animal room
  • a library
  • extensive grounds
  • spacious classrooms equipped with interactive whiteboards and the latest computer technology


We regularly feature pupils’ work and successes on our websites and seek to include all our children in school performances and off-site learning activities, experiences from which they may have been excluded in the past.


Our pupils receive a broad and balanced curriculum, aiming to meet their individual special educational needs. The school is committed to equal opportunities and all our pupils are expected to leave school with accredited qualifications. At all times pupils and staff are expected to work and behave responsibly, showing respect and consideration for others.


We are developing a culture of aspiration, achievement and personal growth for all pupils and we are committed to broadening their experiences through our enrichment programme. Themed days, residential excursions and an active Student Council combine to make this a busy school where everyone’s talents are nurtured and stretched.


Our school motto is ‘All Different, All Valued, All Equal’ so you can see this is not merely a slogan but a guiding principle for whole school improvement.
