The Grange Therapeutic School
Set in the peaceful Leicestershire countryside, we offer residential care and day school places for boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 18 who have social, emotional and mental health needs or high functioning autism. It is currently rated as Outstanding by Ofsted for the behaviour and welfare of students.
Our aim is very simple: we want to equip every child with the skills and knowledge they need to lead healthy, productive lives. This is summed up in our motto – “Discover Potential – Enjoy Success – Prepare for Life”. Many of our children have very complex needs and challenging circumstances, but we always look beyond the issues to see their innate potential within and give them the chance to experience a range a opportunities so they can be the best they can be.
We offer children a wide range of creative indoor and outdoor learning opportunities and extracurricular activities. In 2018 Ofsted said “The school provides a broad curriculum which enables pupils to make strong progress across academic subjects, outdoor learning and vocational courses.”
We work together as a team with children’s families and carers as well as external agencies involved in their life. Our aim is to create a safe environment where our students can develop academically whilst learning the broader skills they need to succeed in life.
“Pupils make outstanding progress in their ability to manage their behaviour, from mostly low starting points. They grow in self-esteem and confidence.” Ofsted 2018
"Outcomes for residential pupils at the school are outstanding. The residential pupils make exceptional progress in this school especially with regards their confidence, maturity, personal hygiene, independence skills and behaviour." Ofsted
"The Grange was a wonderful experience for him. What I liked most is that they refused to give up on him: they ‘befriended’ him in a professional way. The staff persevered until they found a curriculum that worked for him personally. " Former Pupil's Grandma
"Before I came here I was really naughty but now my behaviour at home has really improved, my mum is really happy with me." Year 8 pupil
"The atmosphere is more like a family than a school. It’s comforting to know that there is always someone there to help you get through your problems which helps your self-esteem.
The staff helped me dramatically and I can’t believe I’m at college. As far as I’m concerned, they couldn’t have done a better job." Former Pupil
