Welcome to Our School

We are an independent co-educational day school for children with Special Educational Needs (SEN), aged 5 to 16 years with social, emotional and mental health needs, including Autism.


Situated on the Devon and Cornwall border at Whitstone, near Holsworthy, the majority of our children are full-time and have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP).


Our school is a learning community for staff and pupils, where everyone feels welcome, included and respected. We believe that everyone has the right to be free from prejudice and discrimination.

Children develop and learn in different ways, and we have created a school which is flexible and can adapt to pupil's needs.


We opened to provide part-time intervention places in January 2017, opened for full-time pupils in July 2017, and received an Ofsted 'good' rating for our first inspection which took place in October 2017.

Our school has been shortlisted for three national awards, including 'New Market Entrant' and 'Education Business of the Year' at the 2018 Education Investor Awards and 'Special Needs Initiative' at the TES Independent School Awards 2019.
