Overview of our services

We understand that deciding where to send your child to school or college is a big decision and that you need as much information as possible to help you make the right choice for you and your family.

Our specialist services provide the highest quality of education and care in a safe and nurturing environment in which your child can achieve the best possible outcomes. We firmly believe that all young people respond positively when they are given the right support.

Whether we’re working with young people with autism, mental health, behavioural or learning needs, our aim is to unlock the potential in everyone we support. We go the extra mile to develop academic, vocational, independence and social skills, helping our young people successfully progress into adulthood.

“98.4% of leavers from our schools and colleges successfully move onto employment, education, training and/or residential care provisions.”

Parent’s views

“My child is now so excited to go to school that he didn’t want to go on a family holiday because he wanted to go to school! A year ago he wouldn’t have stepped into a school, let alone missed a chance not to go. The staff understand his needs and are caring. It’s hard to put into words what the school and staff have done for my little boy.”

(Parent of a pupil at a Priory school) 

“The staff are so caring with the children, it’s like a family. If it weren't these staff looking after my child, I wouldn't let her go to stay in a home. I don't trust some friends as much as I trust the people at the home. They're all lovely and I am so grateful. I know my child can be quite a handful but they talk to her in the right way. She gets a lot of opportunities that I wouldn't be able to give her so that is really good.”
