Who we are

Originally established in 1897, the organisation was initially created to teach agricultural skills to men with learning or physical disabilities.

However in 1904, a school was built exclusively for children with epilepsy, where staff used the local on-site farm, garden and wildlife to teach pupils. Children and young people with epilepsy and other neurological conditions were admitted to the school and the name changed to St Piers. 

Our Governing Body consists of 15 governors drawn from staff, the Local Education Authority, parents and the wider community.

    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.
