How we make the difference

Our track record of success and sector-leading Ofsted judgements has been achieved through an ethos of high aspiration; placement stability through our ‘team around the child’ approach; unique in-school therapy solutions; and our inspiring environments. These all combine to optimise life opportunities for children and young people, give confidence to parents and carers, and deliver unmatched value for local authorities.
