Oliver House School has four children’s homes offering residential accommodation for up to 17 young people in total.
All of the homes are registered with Ofsted to provide up to 52 week care for both boys and girls from the ages of six to 18 years. Located around 20 minutes from the main Oliver House School site, accommodation is available at:
- Sion House - Five en suite bedrooms and three respite beds
- Croston Road - Four bedrooms and two bathrooms
- New House Farm - Six bedrooms (some en suite)
- Fox Lane - Four bedrooms and two bathrooms
Continuity is key to the high quality of care provided at Oliver House School, with staff working across both the residential and education services.
This innovative approach provides much needed familiarity and structure for the young person being looked after as well as minimising transitions throughout the course of a typical school day. In practice, this means that often the same staff member helping the young person with their morning care routine at the home is the same person with them on the bus to school, and the same person supporting them in lessons throughout the day.
