We have a flexible approach to learning, personalising the curriculum to help meet students' needs and abilities & where people live
At Spring Hill we pride ourselves on offering a warm, nurturing and welcoming environment to our young people and their families.
Our residential cottages are situated within the beautiful grounds of Spring Hill school which allows for unlimited opportunities for recreation and play as well as the opportunity to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the rural setting. Each cottage provides a home away from home recreating a family environment that is safe, comfortable and most importantly happy. All of our bedrooms are en-suite and are furnished to a high standard. We encourage the young people to personalise their room by choosing paint colour and soft furnishings, hanging pictures on their walls and adding personal belongings to make them feel truly settled in their environment.
Young people can if they wish be given a key to lock their bedroom to ensure their privacy. Our homes cottages are fully equipped with everything you would expect to find in a family home including a living and dining area, a utility room with washing machines and dryers, a kitchen with the most up to date appliances and additional communal spaces.
The young people’s thoughts, wishes and opinions are taken into consideration in all aspects of the planning and running of the home. They are actively encouraged to participate in things such as shopping, meal planning and preparation, general domestic tasks such as tidying their bedroom, setting the table for dinner and putting on the odd load of washing.
The care and maintenance teams ensure that everything is well maintained and safe for
young people and adults.
Each young person is allocated a Key Worker and a Co-Key Worker, these staff members co-ordinate the care for the young person and act as the named contacts for the young person and their family.
