We have a points systems that rewards good behaviour, attendance and effrot as well as academic and vocational achievement. We offer a 24 hour curriculum for students from Sunday evenings through to Friday afternoons.
As an all boys residential school, our students complete a wide range of qualifications, both academic and vocational as well as being supported in extra curricula activities and the devlopment of life skills and independent living by a team of dedicated and caring residential child care professionals.
Our latest Ofsted report congratulated both staff and students for celebrating success and achievement, highlighting the school's unique learning atmosphere and our students' interaction with teaching, care and support staff. The inspection judgement of 'good' for student achievement particularly praised the school as being:
"very effective in helping students gain awards and qualifications. These have a considerable impact on raisingstudents' self-esteem...evidence towards catering and health and safety awards was celloected during the cooking and baking sessions led by the school cook during the inspection. These awards build to provide a convincing portfolio that show how well students are acquiring life skills and moving towards independence."
