Blossom House School is a specialist school for children with speech, language and communication difficulties. Recognised as 'outstanding' by Ofsted, the school continues to expand and now has two separate sites, one at Christopher Place in Central London and another at Motspur Park in South West London.

Blossom Lower School, Christopher Place currently has pupils aged from 3-9 years, who will be moving up through the school to year 6. Blossom House, Motspur Park has pupils from 3-19 years and includes a post 16 'college links' provision.

Although many of our pupils have some associated difficulties such as fine motor problems or poor organisational skills, all are within the broadly average range of cognitive ability. We provide an integrated, holistic programme of learning and therapies in a caring and highly supportive environment, so that each child has the opportunity to fulfil his or her potential.

Blossom House has a unique atmosphere created by a dedicated, highly competent and wonderfully caring staff. Specific strengths are acknowledged and weaknesses supported, so that each child 'blossoms' and has the opportunity to fulfil his or her potential, whether that is remaining with us or returning to mainstream education.

The key aims of the school:

  • To provide a communication centred environment where children with a range of speech, language and communication difficulties are supported in all areas of their learning.
  • To provide a highly skilled team of specialist therapists, teachers and support staff who can work with the children in a range of learning environments.
  • To provide support and advice for parents.
