Set in a stunning sustainable and eco-friendly 40-acre site close to the New Forest and Dorset coastline, the natural surroundings of our school and college provide a rich, enabling and therapeutic learning environment for students, aged 6-25, who have a special educational need.
We specialise in autism and communication difficulties, severe and complex learning disabilities and challenging behaviour.
A heart, head and hands approach to teaching and supporting students with a special educational need, our Rudolf Steiner inspired school and college conducts modern best practice whilst respecting and developing every student’s sense of self.
Our mission is to create an educational therapeutic community and environment, which upholds each person's human integrity and spiritual wholeness and where every child and young person, both because of and despite their individual challenges, has something to give and something to learn through all of their relationships with others.
Corine van Barneveld - Principal
