Park House

Location: Somerset

Gender: Mixed

Age Range: 8 to 19

Capacity: 20

Park House School is a small, therapeutic-based learning environment, registered for 20 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 the 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. 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 the 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.

Next Steps

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.

ATSSA silver logoThe Attachment and Trauma-Sensitive Award validates schools that demonstrate a culture of compassion and nurture, fundamental components for getting children into a state of ‘learning readiness’. The Silver award is issued only to providers who can demonstrate they have met its rigorous quality standards.
