Principal's Welcome

We believe that all children should have the opportunity to be happy and to thrive in school.  High Peak School offers a safe and calm environment where children can be themselves and their families can feel as much a part of the community as the pupils themselves.  

We want every child to leave High Peak school with the knowledge and skills to be confident, able young people with high aspirations to achieve their own personal goals.  We aim for each child to interact and participate as active, capable members of their own community.

Rachel Boylan, Principal.

Meet the team

Who we are

Our specialist multi-disciplinary team of leaders, carers, therapists and educationalists work seamlessly together. They teach and proactively support pupils who have been subjected to adverse childhood experiences, including trauma, toxic stress and associated mental wellbeing difficulties, aiming to break the cycle of adversity. Children and young people may also come to us because they are challenged by attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, and dyspraxia or moderate and specific learning difficulties.

We have a specific provision within the school called the Quiet Learning Zone where we support children and young people who have an autistic spectrum condition including Asperger’s syndrome and those who have communication and sensory difficulties. The environment and teaching approaches are bespoke and tailored to ensure our children and young people thrive and can develop their self-esteem.

We have extensive experience of supporting those with attachment disorders or those who have been victims of abuse and neglect.

We actively encourage the development of life skills such as staying safe, acting responsibly and being respectful whether that be at school, at home or in the local community.
