Residential SEMH School in Cumbria
Skip to main content

Wings School Cumbria is a nurturing independent specialist residential and day school for children who are aged 9 - 17 and have social, emotional and mental health needs (SEMH).

All our children and young people have identified social, emotional and mental health difficulties. They may also have learning difficulties such as autistic spectrum disorders including Asperger’s Syndrome, Attention Deficit Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, moderate learning difficulties and other specific learning difficulties.

Our vision is to create a safe, and caring community where there is a passion for learning and mutual respect for all. Children and young people have the opportunity to develop to their full potential in preparation for their future lives in a nurturing setting. We are committed to providing the highest standards in both Education and Care.

There is a particular focus on outdoor learning which enables those children and young people who find working in a classroom difficult the opportunity to re-engage in their education and the school community.
