Thank the school
Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.
This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.
Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.
Special Education Needs
Rowden House is a very special residential school for up to 44 young people aged 11-19 who have severe learning difficulties, combined with difficult and challenging patterns of behaviour. We offer a wealth of resources and expertise. The specific aim is to approach problems in a positive way, thereby enabling each young person to realise their potential and develop into happy and healthy adults, better able to cope with, and integrate into, a conventional social structure. Establishing a safe and stable environment for all pupils provides for a firm foundation for ongoing social and educational progress. With purpose built facilities, collective expertise and unrivalled staffing levels, Rowden House is able to guide every pupil through long term programmes of formal and informal education. Individually tailored programmes of education and care are regularly reviewed to support all the pupils in achieving their highest levels of independence and achievement. In addition to well-equipped classrooms and a fully functional kitchen, Rowden House has specialist ICT and Craft Design rooms. We also have our own Pottery with kiln and a White Room for sensory stimulation. The youngsters are able to relax and enjoy our Ball Pool playroom and our new Leisure Barn combines physical education with therapy and relaxation.
