What the school says...

Hamilton Lodge teaches each one of its pupils and students to:
*successfully acquire language and communication skills
*develop emotionally, socially & spiritually
*be healthy and fit and enjoy their leisure time
*become confident and independent young people ready to be able to continue learning and enter employment.

The child centred communication approach at Hamilton Lodge supports the development of both English and British Sign Language. Following the sad closure of Ovingdean Hall School last year seven of its pupils joined us. They are doing well here, evidence that our child centred approach caters well for children from different educational backgrounds.

Young people receive outstanding levels of individual support, guidance and care. Relationships between staff and young people are professional and respectful. It is clear that the culture of the school promotes the empowerment of young people.
