Education and Care with Family in Mind

Our innovative, independent, specialist residential schools, specialist day schools and children's homes across England help young people to thrive, flourish and reach their full academic and personal potential. We support young people living with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs, autism (ASC) and specific learning difficulties which may affect their behaviour.

Our schools follow the National Curriculum and we have a strong educational focus to give our children and young people the very best start in life. We understand that we are the start of the pathway for young people and we support them to build the foundations for their future. We look at the needs of each individual young person and finding the right educational and residential option for them.
