Our Philosophy "Believe and You Will Achieve"

We encourage our students to develop their social skills and give them room for personal development.

We encourage our students to strive towards meaningful goals and support them as they solve the problems they encounter so that they gain increased levels of autonomy.

Our philosophy is applied to all levels of our teaching plan. Students are encouraged to get involved in designing the way that they are taught.

In short, we encourage our students to develop their own personality and to discover their own individual paths towards adulthood.

Our Aims

To provide a stimulating, caring and safe environment where pupils develop a sense of self worth and a capacity for enjoyment.
