their personal keyworker. Pupils trust and respect this adult who supports them.
They are safe and happy in their school. Over time, pupils make strong progress in
their social skills. Older students mentor younger pupils. Pupils from all age groups
enjoy playing sport together at lunchtime.
Pupils enjoy an increasingly effective academic curriculum. They are proud to share
their work and achievements. In the sixth form, students are confident learners.
Several go on to achieve places at prestigious universities. With guidance, pupils set
personal goals. This helps staff match learning and care to pupils’ unique and varied
interests.
Personal development is at the heart of the school’s work. Pupils are carefully
encouraged to become increasingly independent and adventurous. They flourish in
an exceptional outdoor education curriculum. In these weekly sessions, they
experience caving, climbing, canoeing and more. Pupils develop important character
traits. These include teamwork and confidence. They use these transferrable skills to
overcome other challenges in their lives.”
