Our Pupils' Complex Needs

We are a school for pupils with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) difficulties.  

Underlying these difficulties, most of our pupils will also have some combination of additional complex needs, such as Anxiety disorders, ASD, ADHD, FASD, PDA, OCD, ODD, Toxic Childhood Stress / Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), Attachment difficulties, Developmental Trauma or Delay, Speech and Language difficulties, Cognition and Learning difficulties, Specific Learning Difficulties such as Dyslexia and Dyspraxia; and more. 

Some of our young people will have displayed challenging behaviour at their previous schools.
