Residential care

Nothing is more important to us than providing a "home away from home" for the children that stay with us.

Many of our students have felt isolated or left out at mainstream school and come to us with very low self-confidence. Our job, above all else, is to make them feel comfortable, safe and happy.

What residential options are there?

Around 50 children and young people live here. We have three houses for up to 24 students whilst they attend St Piers School based on the campus.

In these houses we provide weekly and term-time boarding. We also offer weekend or holiday short break services for parents and students who need additional support.

Our Children‘s Home enables parents and local authorities to extend their stay from 39 week for up to 52 weeks a year.

How do staff support the young people at St Piers?

Staff are highly trained to ensure they can meet the very specific needs of the children and young people in their care.

They are trained in specific areas such as managing epilepsy, developmental play, working with challenges in communication and behaviour, as well as autism.

When working with children and young people, staff use our five golden rules of communication:

  • consistency
  • one voice
  • structure
  • keywords
  • total communication.


All children and young people are supported by the multidisciplinary team of therapists. The team work with the residential staff on a range of programmes to support each young person with their daily needs.

Feedback from parents

Quote Icon My son has grown in confidence and now enjoys school. The school has helped my son progress mentally and physically. It is so reassuring to parents knowing all their child’s needs are being catered for.
