We offer full time education and short-term day respite placements for children with statements and Education and Health Care (EHC) plans, usually on the autistic spectrum, or with social, emotional or mental health needs. Learners come from diverse settings; many have a history of disrupted and /or limited schooling.


Our approach is simple. We start from where each child and family are in relation to education and we build a learning programme that re-engages children with education in a positive way. We work closely with families to build trust and confidence in pupils so that learning will flourish.

The highest standards of work and behaviour are expected and pupils achieve very good outcomes – socially, emotionally and educationally. We teach skills and learning behaviours that our children can use and apply in all aspects of their lives as they grow towards adulthood.

Students take external accreditation at every opportunity irrespective of their age. These include A and AS levels, GCSE’s, Level 1 and 2, Entry Levels and other vocational qualifications. Our outstanding examination results are achieved because we have expert staff.

You can read more about our approach on our learning, curriculum and therapies page and find out how attachment theory underpins all our principles.

We are a warm and truly inclusive school and welcome visits so you can experience firsthand our unique educational offering.


Small school model

We follow a small school model because we believe it delivers the best outcomes for our students. We have 3 sites for the Southover Partnership School to allow us to keep student numbers small. This means each school community gets to deeply know and understand its members and gives students the opportunity to be more directly involved in their own education. It allows us to apply principles of attachment theory, encourage our students to grow, and give a truly personalised and holistic education experience.
