Hillcrest Glebedale School provides education, therapy and support for children and young people aged from 7 to 19 years with social, emotional and mental health needs.
The clinical team support the education team in developing a pupil centred curriculum which proactively promotes the children and young people’s social, emotional and mental health. We aim to deliver the highest quality provision which maximises each person's quality of life and personal achievements.
The curriculum is provided in a structured and supportive environment and is planned to meet the personal, academic and pastoral needs of the pupils at each stage of their schooling. In order to support access to the curriculum, education staff work alongside clinicians in order to understand and respond therapeutically to the children learning with us.
"Students who enter the school with negative attitudes to education achieve more than they thought possible." (Ofsted)
Students may come from foster placements or from local families that need specialist provision and many of our students reside in one of the local residential homes offered by Hillcrest Children's Services.
