In December 2011 Channels and Choices opened The Sallygate School. This is a school for children with SEMH (Social, Emotional, Mental Health) needs. The school curriculum caters for key stages 2, 3 and 4 and has a high level of staff to pupil ratios to ensure that each individual child has the opportunity to reach their full potential.
