The layout of The Rocks is really helping increase my son’s independence and the fact that the staff there are all already known to them has meant a really smooth transition. They're both so happy and are once again thriving, saying "I've not felt this happy since before primary school". The school are also supporting my son once again to follow his dreams and work hard to achieve his goals. Thank you both so much for making this happen and once again getting them into the best setting to meet their needs.

"You have got a good measure of our child and we really like your straightforward, no-nonsense approach with her. Our child responds well to such consistent and firm boundaries. We are sure they will do well with you all at High Peak. Thank you."
