SEMH and Autism School in Cheshire

Who we are

High Peak School is part of the Kedleston Group and opened in 2014.

From our beautiful rural location in Cheshire, we offer a unique setting having been converted from a hotel to create innovative and inspiring learning, social, recreational and living spaces.

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 'Rocks Centre' 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.

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.
