Park House School is a small, therapeutic-based learning environment, registered for 14 pupils aged 8 to 19. The school offers specialist education provision for young people with complex SEMH.
Park House offers an alternative setting and provision for young people for whom school has not worked. Our school and our practice are based on ‘Thrive’ principles, giving young people every chance to re-engage and succeed.
Park House has a holistic approach where our young people are truly at the centre of their provision. We design bespoke packages that are flexible to respond as the young person changes and develops.
All our programmes are delivered by qualified and experienced teachers alongside Specialist Higher-Level Teaching Assistants. At Park House, we work with our young people to help boost their confidence and self-esteem, and address barriers to learning and success. We enable them to identify who they are, where they want to be and to see a pathway to achieve success.
We carry out academic assessment alongside emotional profiling to ensure that each programme is meeting the needs of each student in our care. Pupils have access to a full curriculum, alongside achieving the academic qualifications identified in their plan.
There is also a very sharp focus on the next steps. A combination of targeted work and relevant qualifications, advice and guidance, college placements, work experience and volunteering not only develops a sense of self and belonging; it sparks powerful aspirations within our pupils for their future, and what they can achieve.
