Our Silverstone school is an independent special school for pupils aged 11 to 16 with a range of social, emotional and mental health difficulties. Our pupils often have histories of disrupted education including low attendance and/or exclusion from mainstream education. Many have special educational needs including social, emotional, mental health difficulties. Some have additional difficulties and specific learning difficulties including dyslexia, social communication difficulties, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism and Tourette’s syndrome.
We support our pupils to fulfil their potential by giving them unconditional support, providing them with good quality teaching and empowering them to effectively manage their own behaviour.
Our staff team work together to build and maintain positive professional relationships with all pupils, treating each pupil with tolerance and respect. Protective Behaviours and THRIVE principles underpin the curriculum to support the social and emotional development of our students delivered by our dedicated wellbeing team. We offer a wide range of subjects and experiences to ensure that students are motivated to succeed.
Our extensive premises offer excellent facilities to deliver academic, creative, vocational and outdoor learning opportunities including a large self-contained play area, workshops, an array of well-resourced and spacious classrooms, a fully fitted canteen, substantially equipped IT suite, multiple opportunities for outdoor learning and a large art offering.
