Park House

Park House School is a small, therapeutic based learning environment, registered for 12 pupils aged 9 to 19 years. Park House School is a specialist education provision offering education to young people with complex SEMH.

Park House School offers an alternative setting and provision for young people for whom school has not worked. Our school and our practice is based on ‘Thrive’ principles providing young people every chance of re-engagement and success.

Park House has a holistic approach where the young people are truly at the centre of their provision. Bespoke packages are designed to fit the young person, the packages are flexible and responsive so that they can change and grow as the young person changes and develops.

All programmes are delivered by qualified and experienced teachers alongside Specialist Teaching Assistants. At Park House, we work with a young person to help boost confidence, self-esteem, address barriers to learning and success enabling them to identify who they are, where they want to be and achieve success.

Academic assessment alongside emotional profiling ensure that each programme is meeting the needs of the individual student. Pupils have access to a full curriculum along with achieving academic qualifications as identified in their plan.

At Park House, there is a very real focus on ‘next steps’. Targeted work, advice and guidance, college placements, work experience, volunteering all work towards helping to develop not only a sense of self, a sense of belonging but true aspirations within our pupils for their future and what they can achieve, what they can have.
