Special Needs


Coastal Park provides a positive, supportive, and caring learning environment for up to 37 pupils with a wide range of social, emotional, and mental health needs. Our diverse cohort of pupils is made up of young people who live in care at Coastal Park and children from the local community - all of whom benefit from our school's bespoke, therapeutic approach to education.

Holistic Education

Our flexible curriculum is specifically structured to help our pupils succeed, guiding them in understanding their social and emotional needs and behaviours, and supporting their development into well-rounded, confident, and successful individuals. With the help of our highly trained, passionate team of staff, our pupils feel supported and believe in themselves as they progress - both personally and academically.

Bespoke Facilities

At Coastal Park, we take a holistic approach to learning, offering our young people a wide variety of learning and growth opportunities that cater to their individual needs and interests. From our larger classrooms geared toward group-work, to our smaller breakaway rooms tailored for one-on-one support, Coastal Park strives to provide the appropriate learning environment for every single one of our pupils.

Motivate, Educate, Inspire

Coastal Park belongs to a well-respected family of Compass Community Schools based throughout the UK. At Compass, our mission is simple: providing outstanding education that inspires our young people and supports them in securing better outcomes.

We strive to deliver holistic educational experiences, developing young people who are responsible, caring, and respectful of others.

Our vision is to inspire our learners to make positive life choices, motivating them to overcome barriers to learning and make the most of their life chances.
