"Heart warming to see"

"We are very pleased with the progress Tom has made since attending Clay Hill. There is a noticeable difference in his behaviour and stress levels and he now enjoys going to school, this is a massive improvement. It is heart-warming to see how well Tom has embraced Clay Hill and how he now enjoys school life, which is a stark difference to when he was in his mainstream setting. Please pass our thanks onto everyone who works with Tom and we look forward to watch him grow over the years to come.”
