Special Education Needs

St Catherine's is a school that combines education and care with speech, language and occupational therapy for learners with a speech and language disorder. Each class is assigned a trained and experienced teacher, and a speech and language therapist. In addition to this expertise, there are learning support assistants and an occupational therapy team. Education for 16+ is offered at Grove Hill Further Education Centre. The Centre offers an integrated educational programme which blends vocational courses, speech, language and occupational therapy with independent living skills within a residential setting. Education and therapy are supported by a skilled and dedicated care team and a trained and professional medical team. Both teams aim to ensure the emotional, spiritual, and physical well being of each young person so they are ready and able to learn, and able to access the social and recreational opportunities available to them.
