Park House School: we learn together from 9.15 am to 3.30 pm

From sporting activities and cooking classes to Maths, Science and English tuition, Park House School structures its day around your child’s individual curriculum and offers every opportunity for group activities.

1-to-1 Learning ‘til Lunchtime’

Children with social interaction and communication difficulties can struggle with learning in a group setting. That’s why we start the school day with 1-to-1 lessons. Our full-time key-workers can offer students relaxed learning and social interaction.

Adults and students spread out across a collection of relaxed and well-equipped classrooms. A high ratio of staff to students helps give students the support they need to progress towards success, in school, and to feel safe and supported during off-site visits.

We have Specialist Teachers for many subjects

Including:

  • Pre-National Curriculum level lessons
  • Essential pre-learning skills of attention, interaction, communication and imitation
  • Within the context of the Literacy, Numeracy and Knowledge of the World
  • National Curriculum, P-Scales (pre-NC-level 1) and Foundation Stage Curriculum Subjects
  • Core GCSE subjects
  • A-level subjects

Lunch and Snack Time

Free time is a chance to practice life skills, such as washing, changing and eating as a school community. Students bring in packed lunches from home.

Afternoon Activities

Students can spend their afternoons developing important life and social skills by leaving school and enjoying local facilities. Afternoons are set aside for swimming, walking, horse-riding, sailing, rowing, cycling, using the shops and visiting museums or community soft-play facilities, all with adult supervision.

Building Social Skills

As a small school, it’s important for us to spend time socialising in our local community.
This involves:

  • Opportunities to mix with lots of other young people
  • Bus journeys or local outings, to help develop community living skills
  • Spending time with other youngsters of similar developmental and biological ages
