We have a flexible approach to learning, personalising the curriculum to help meet students' needs and abilities
As an independent specialist provision for 7 to 18 year olds with on-going mental health difficulties, our team works hard to provide high quality personalised education experiences. We combine high expectations for our students with sensitivity to their individual needs.
We pride ourselves on providing a warm and nurturing environment, where young people can excel and become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. Our school staff form part of an effective multidisciplinary team that aims to equip students with the requisite knowledge and skills necessary to meet life’s increasingly difficult challenges.
We have two school sites, our main school site in Paignton and our vocational centre in Buckfastleigh: Project Compass.
We offer a wide range of activities that enrich spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our students. We extend learning beyond the classroom to build essential independent skills, foster teamwork and to promote community collaboration through charity work, work experience and school trips.
