Cambian Whinfell School is a 52-week education service that offers 'Outstanding' residential education and care for boys and young men aged 11-19 with autism, severe learning difficulties, challenging behaviour and complex needs.
Our students have often experienced significant disruption to their schooling in the past and may come to us from multiple placement breakdowns. They may also present a risk to themselves or others due to high levels of challenging behaviour or insufficient personal development.
Cambian Whinfell joined the Cambian Group in 2013, as part of our specialist education and care services. It delivers educational and therapeutic care within a structured, homely setting where our students benefit from a calm and caring environment that enables them to achieve their personal best.
We strive to maintain excellent levels of rapport between staff and students in order to support their personal growth that may include; spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
Whinfell School offers access to the National Curriculum using modified programmes of study where appropriate. In addition, we provide vocational training and opportunities for Further Education.
Drawing upon our years of experience in providing specialist education and 24-hour care provision, we focus on the development of personal, social, communication and living skills. Multi-disciplinary teams and high staffing ratios ensure intensive and individual support.
Additional activities in and out of school hours complement the curriculum. Everything we do is supported by a wide range of clinical and therapeutic inputs including:
• Speech Language Therapy
• Occupational Therapy
• Music Therapy
“Whinfell provides an outstanding quality of education. It is outstanding in every respect and greatly valued by students, parents and carers and the placing local authorities,” Ofsted report 2012.
