Coxlease School is a specialist residential school for boys aged 9 to 18 with severe behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. We have a strong reputation for providing highly effective care, education, therapy, welfare and support for boys who may have experienced trauma, inconsistent and confusing care and emotional rejection. Located near Lyndhurst, Hampshire Coxlease School is close to the M27 and M3, approximately two hours drive and a 90 minute train journey from London.
The school is set within ten acres of grounds and woodland which provide pupils with a safe environment in which to learn, have fun and grow. This stable and caring environment combined with high staff to pupil ratios ensures that every pupil at Coxlease has the opportunity to develop their ability, share new experiences and reach their full potential.
Placements are on a day or residential basis, weekly or for up to 52 weeks of the year and respite is also available during the holidays where required.
The on-site education department has full DCSF approval and all pupils are expected to attend and wear school uniform. The full National Curriculum is provided which is broad, balanced and modified to meet each pupil's needs according to their Individual Education Plan.
Outdoor facilities include games and adventure areas for developing outdoor skills. A new sports hall provides for football, basketball and other indoor sports. Residential accommodation is split into nine small homely bases for up to seven boys both on and off site.
Through an integrated approach to education, care and therapy we aim to give young people with severe and challenging behavioural issues the opportunity to make positive changes in their lives to achieve their full potential and integrate into the wider community.
