Environment & Facilities

Located within the spacious and peaceful grounds of the hospital, our new build school which opened in April 2019, provides a calm and purposeful environment which encourages students to concentrate, learn and develop in a caring, supportive setting. We offer small teaching groups with extra support from teaching assistants where required. The school has six purposeful teaching rooms with designated spaces for students with eating disorders or neurodevelopmental disorders or learning difficulties to ensure an appropriate learning environment is provided.
