Visiting Head Teacher

"Sincere thanks for providing me with such an outstanding day today. I was inspired by the tour and learning the broader overview of learning, residential and therapy team. It was fabulous to see so many young people so engaged, passionate and fully immersed in their learning. My particular favourite moment was the making of pancakes.  Displays were a credit to all your staff. The boys of Farm House were especially proud of their work on show."

"The staff are fantastic and get to know the real positives in the kids and work with that. My child has come a long way and made massive improvement both socially and academically. The school is a credit to the kids and the kids are a credit to the school".
