Class sizes

Unlike most maintained state schools, classes at St Piers have no more than five or six children in each.

This is hugely beneficial for children who are low in confidence or have distinct needs. They get to know their teacher much more personally and build up a rapport that simply wouldn’t be possible in a busier classroom.

Small classes allow us to focus on individual pupils’ needs. And because we share care plans between teaching staff, residential staff and on site therapists, our specially trained teachers are fully aware of the individual circumstances of each child. This means they’re in a position to react quickly if a pupil needs urgent therapy or medical attention.

Best of all, children are happier in smaller classes, and better able to learn – which means they make excellent progress at St Piers.

Feedback from parents

Quote Icon My grandson has a severe epileptic condition. He has Lennox Gaustaut syndrome and difficult to control seizures. He can have many seizures throughout day and night. He was attending a special needs school but when he became the age of 16-17 years they could not meet his medical needs or physical needs. It was discussed that he would benefit from going to Young Epilepsy. How lucky he is to go there. It is an absolute school of excellence. He does and goes places that I never thought he would do. The heads, the teachers and all professional people are there to give and help with advice, care, and the vast experience of epilepsy. He cooks, swims, canoeing, archery and lots more. He is very happy and so am I. I do not worry about him as I have every confidence in everyone at the Young Epilepsy.
