Welcome to Highcroft School. We provide placements for pupils who reside in Keys Group residential homes and for day pupils.
We are committed to each and every one of our pupils and provide specialist support which is individually tailored to meet the unique needs of the pupils.
• To provide a safe, secure, positive and supportive environment in which each individual can contribute and feel valued, knowing that his/her achievements are recognised.
• To encourage personal responsibility, respect, co operation and sensitivity to the needs of others.
• To awaken a thirst for knowledge and understanding and to develop the skills with which to acquire and use that knowledge and understanding.
• To deliver all the requirements of the National Curriculum.
What sets us apart from other schools
We are committed to each and every one of our pupils and provide specialist support which is individually tailored to meet the unique needs of every young person. Situated in a quiet, rural village the school offers a nurturing and safe environment for the children attending.
Individual Education Plans ensure each pupil works through a differentiated National Curriculum programme of study appropriate to their ability and Key Stage.
Highcroft School is a small registered independent school which provides specialist education for girls between the ages of 11-18 years.
Many of the children who come to Highcroft School have been diagnosed with conditions such as ADHD, Dyslexia/Dyspraxia and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Areas of expertise
Highcroft School acknowledges that most of its pupils have great difficulty in interacting socially and often lack essential life skills that would enable them to make safe and informed decisions.
To address this, the school puts a great emphasis on building positive relationships, social and independence skills and equipping young people with the necessary competencies to thrive in the outside world.
Highcroft School’s First Aid Policy is available to parents on request or via the school office.
"Pupils who have previously experienced long periods of absence from school and have negative attitudes to learning, begin to enjoy education at Highcroft. This is because of the strong support and guidance that they receive at the school." OFSTED
