We run independent schools in London and Essex for 7-19 year-old pupils with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs (formerly Behavioural, Emotional and Social Difficulties) or an Autism Spectrum Condition. These pupils are typically  referred to us by Local Authorities and have not been successful in previous mainstream, pupil referral unit or special school type educational placements.

We also operate a parallel specialist service, CREATE (Community Recovery, Education, Assessment and Therapeutic Engagement). CREATE is a relationship-based, multi-disciplinary provision for pupil with multiple and complex needs who have been unable to operate safely and successfully in a small class setting.

Since 2000, we have delivered an industry-leading package of education, health and care, taking each pupil on an individual journey that encourages a love of learning and long-term life success.

Our highly-skilled, multi-disciplinary teams transform pupils’ perception of their own skills, strengths and abilities and provide safe, nurturing and inspiring environments which enable our pupils to thrive.

We are committed to achieving the best outcomes for each pupil by enabling access to outstanding education. All of our schools are Ofsted rated as 'Outstanding' or 'Good with many 'Outstanding' standards.
