We understand that deciding where to send your child to school or college is a big decision. This is true for any child, but can be even more so for children with special educational needs (SEN). That’s why we’re committed to helping you make the right choice for you and your family.

Our services provide the highest quality of education and care in safe and nurturing environments. All of our specialist schools, colleges and children’s homes are designed to support SEN students to flourish and achieve the best possible outcomes for them as individuals.

At Priory Education and Children’s Services, we firmly believe that all young people respond positively when they are given the right support. We go the extra mile to develop academic, vocational, independence and social skills, helping our young people successfully progress into adulthood.

“My son really enjoys coming to school and it's still a novelty for me to see him practically skipping down the garden path each morning to the waiting taxi! Gone are the days at his old school when we couldn't even get him out of bed each day, let alone get him through the school doors!”
