Information about the school

We are a small non-maintained specialist school created to provide an inclusive and therapeutic learning environment for young people, aged 8-18, who are unable to access mainstream education and where the primary need is support for SEMH.

We aim to bridge the gap created by time lost in education by offering a personalised learning programme for our learners, who have frequently experienced disrupted education leading to disengagement, challenging behaviours and/or exclusions from a mainstream environment.

We aim to encourage our youngsters to re-engage in educational opportunities which meet their individual needs by means of one to one support, small group tuition or other interventions.

The Lighthouse School promotes enjoyment in learning through its own alternative and flexible curriculum which leads to opportunities to gain nationally accredited awards and qualifications.
