Glebe House School

Glebe House School Vision Statement February 2018

  • Education is braided within our Therapeutic Community where learning takes place in a respectful environment.
  • The well led teaching team set a context of high expectations of behaviour and attainment for the students to achieve their potential.
  • The students approach learning with curiosity, with the desire to gain the skills, awards and self-confidence for their lives as adults.

Education at Glebe House is delivered through our Registered Independent School, where Young People are provided with access to an individualised curriculum, which offers opportunities for both academic and vocational qualifications.

Many of our learners will have experienced difficulties or disruption within their educational history prior to their arrival here; they may have faced significant barriers to learning because of gaps in education or a diagnosed condition or specific learning difficulty - all of which can impact on a learner's level of attainment, confidence and self-esteem.

Our learners have needs that are often multiple and complex, and we have a significant proportion of students with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND). In order to give our learners the best opportunities for success, our curriculum is tailored towards learners' individual capabilities and interests. Career direction and proposed transitional progression are all taken into account within the curriculum, which is delivered in small group or one-to-one settings.

The Staff team are all experienced practitioners and our provision is regularly reviewed in order to ensure that it continues to meet the needs of our students.
