Aran Hall School provides flexible 30 to 52 week residential care with education to children and young people with a range of learning disabilities and autistic spectrum disorders, both with associated severe challenging behaviour.

We have also developed a programme for young people who present sexually harmful behaviour (SHB). The programme aims to reduce SHB via a reward programme for appropriate behaviour, sex education, counselling and cognitive behaviour therapy.

Our focus is to provide a safe, stable and nurturing environment where young peoples skills and aspirations can be encouraged to develop and they can prepare for adulthood. By providing care and education on the same site we ensure that children's individual programmes are delivered consistently.

We develop education, care and behavioural management programmes for each student. These programmes are evidence based which enable us to demonstrate students achievements. We are leader in conducting and publishing clinical research that evaluates the effectiveness of the innovative programmes we run.
