We are proud of our long history and achievements. We provide a pupil-centered approach to education from the earliest years up to the age of 19. All pupils have an Education and Health Care Plan. Although we are based in Doncaster, we are a national resource and pupils come to us via local authorities from all over the UK. We offer a safe and nurturing environment in which children can learn and communicate effectively to achieve their goals.

Hands-on experiences are invaluable to our pupils in their learning. Numeracy goes beyond the recall of number facts. Confidence in mental calculations helps pupils to transfer strategies to new situations. Pupils are encouraged to question and discuss mathematical concepts to develop their own thinking as they tackle a range of maths problems. We aim to challenge our pupils in numeracy and have high expectations, irrespective of ability. Pupil assessment guides help teachers set work for each individual pupil so they are challenged and progress through the curriculum levels. If a pupil is struggling to make progress, we are able to provide some additional maths intervention lessons to keep them on track. We believe that literacy, numeracy and IT skills are fundamental to lifelong success.
