What the school says...
Blossom House is a specialist school for children with speech, language and communication difficulties. Although many of the children have some associated difficulties such as fine motor problems or poor organisational skills, all are within the broadly average range of cognitive ability. We provide an integrated programme of learning and therapies in a caring and highly supportive environment, so that each child has the opportunity to fulfil his or her potential. Our main provision has recently moved to excellent new premises in Motspur Park.
Blossom House, Christopher Place
In 2013 Blossom House expanded and opened an additional provision in Paddington. Two years later we moved to new, larger premises in Euston in order to develop the provision further. At Blossom House, Christopher Place, we currently have children ranging from 3-6 years old (Nursery to Year 2) and we will be taking these pupils through to year 6. If you would like to arrange a tour of the Christopher Place provision please call directly on 020 7383 3834.
