What the school says...

Crookhey Hall School exists to provide ESBD boys with an educational experience that will not only extend their academic and vocational social skills and abilities, but will also promote personal growth and help to build self-esteem. In this way it is hoped that each individual will aspire to achieve his full potential, eventually leaving school with the determination to make a positive contribution to society in the years to come. The school itself occupies an enviable 15-acre setting in countryside to the south of Cockerham, near Lancaster and has the capacity to educate 74 boys (10-17yrs) as day pupils within nine class groups. The boys all have statements identifying emotional, social and behavioural difficulties and are drawn from towns and cities in the surrounding region, including Blackpool, Fleetwood, Preston, Leyland, Wigan, Blackburn and Lancaster. The pupils at Crookhey Hall School frequently arrive as disaffected youngsters lacking self-esteem, self-control, direction, goals, role models, expectations and motivation. It is our aim to re-engage pupils in the life and routines of school, habituate attendance and develop socially adjusted young men who can successfully integrate into society and lead productive, purposeful lives. ...Read more
