What the school says...

Holly Bank School is registered with the DfES for 38 weeks, as well as being registered as a children's home by CSCI for 52 weeks. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum which is both sensory and developmental and incorporates the National Curriculum. Work in our Post-16 department is based on realistic essential skills which equip young people for their lives in the community. Where appropriate courses are accredited through 'ALL'. We have regular links with other schools, colleges and community groups.

There is an interdisciplinary approach which includes speech and language therapy, physiotherapy, O.T. nursing, education, I.T. and care. All students have their own individual programme. Staffing levels are high, full police checks are carried out and great emphasis is placed on training and development.

We are in a beautiful semi-rural location, with nearby access to the M1 and M62. Our first class facilities also include overnight accommodation for parents. We provide a homely environment within a safe and secure setting. There are opportunities for our leavers to move on to supported independence housing within the Trust.
