Specialist Education

Outcomes & Success

We understand that you will want your child to receive the best education and care that meets their needs and that's why we're proud that all of our schools, colleges and provisions have been rated a 'trusted provider' by Ofsted and CQC.


A combination of specialist education, person-centred therapeutic planning and measurement of progress can only result in the best outcomes for the people in our care.


We measure our student's progress in a number of different ways:


✓  National curriculum levels

✓  National accreditation achievement awards

✓  Individual Learning Plan Targets (ILP)

✓  Behaviour and social progress

✓  School based awards

✓  Economic well-being (financial skills/work experience)

✓  Being healthy

✓  Staying safe

✓  Enjoying life

✓  Positive contribution
