Clovelly House School is an independent special school for mixed gender pupils from 10-18 based in a rural setting in the East Midlands. Clovelly House is a 52 week residential provision for pupils who attend the on-site school. The ethos is that of a countryside school and the pupils, who have social and emotional and other complex needs, have opportunities to learn the core subjects embedded in a wider curriculum.
Here pupils learn how to manage different ecosystems such as the stream, pond, woods and gardens, keep chickens and small animals, participate in a variety of vocational lessons and engage in outdoor pursuits. Alongside this, in the eco-build school, pupils are able to access lessons to GCSE level through technology, individual packages and flexible learning programs.
We offer a supportive environment and create opportunities for the young people to develop self-esteem and confidence through achieving measured steps of success. Thus, the young people are supported to thrive and grow to responsible adulthood.
