Overley Hall School
Overley, Wellington, Telford, TF6 5HE, West Midlands
Overley Hall School is an independent, residential special school and Children's Home, providing therapeutic education and care to children and young adults aged from eight to 19 years who have a wide range of complex needs including autism and severe learning disabilities. The school is committed to offering each child a wide range of good quality experiences; this occurs through partnerships with parents/carers, teachers and therapists in the delivery of a waking day curriculum by a dedicated team.
Our therapy team is comprised of a Speech and Language Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Clinical Psycologist, Learning Coordinator and Therapy Assistants.
The school and residential home is set in a quiet, rural location which provides a calm and nurturing learning and living environment for young people in our care. Our school building, alongside the residential house, stands in 13 acres of lawn, walled kitchen garden and woodland.
Other facilities within the campus and grounds include a lifeskills room, indoor sensory hydropool, soft play space, art and craft workshops, sensory lodge, cinema room, farm shop, recreational and relaxation areas.
Our registered 'Forest School' operates within the woodland areas, and is led by qualified practitioners from Overley Hall School; this offers pupils opportunities for multi-sensory outdoor learning and recreation experiences throughout the seasons.
Overley Hall School also offers day placements for young people who reside locally.
