We run independent schools in London and Essex for Key Stage 2-5 (7-19 year-old) pupils with SEMH (Social, Emotional and Mental Health) needs (formerly Behavioural, Emotional and Social Difficulties) or an Autistic 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. 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.

We also operate a parallel specialist service, Create Service. This is a relationship-based, multi-disciplinary provision for pupils with multiple and complex needs who have been unable to operate safely and successfully in a small class setting.

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

We are committed to achieving the best outcomes for each pupil by providing access to outstanding education.  90% of our pupils are in education, employment and training six months after leaving us in year 11, a considerable achievement especially when considering these young people's starting point.

All our schools are Ofsted rated as 'Outstanding' or 'Good with many 'Outstanding' standards.
