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? 

We offer weekly and termly residential boarding options during term time.

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 We are very happy with our son’s progress at this school under the care of his teacher. I feel unable to comment on questions 7 and 9 as have not had any dealings in this area. My husband and I are extremely happy with our son’s progress.
