Outcomes and achievements
Our ethos was created in the belief that a positive, supportive, achieving culture is essential for good pupil progress. We seek to maximise independence and individual potential so pupils gain the skills to live happy, meaningful and fulfilling lives.
Individual plans and programmes are adjusted as required to meet the changing needs of each individual and the desired outcome is that we prepare all of our young people for the next stage of their journey, be that in further education, supported employment or lifelong supported environments.
We provide a total environment where young people are offered safe, secure and predictable surroundings in which they can come to understand their own areas of difficulties and learn skills and techniques in order to overcome them. This ensures that they are able to fulfil their potential socially, academically, physically and spiritually and enable them to rebuild their low self-esteem and self belief.
