Welcome to The New School at West Heath. We are a Specialist Independent School catering for a diverse range of needs for boys and girls age 11-19, many of whom have emotional and social communication difficulties. Prior to coming to us, some of our students will have been excluded from mainstream education for a period of time. Here they find a strong therapeutic approach to learning and all students, when they arrive with us, spend time in HEART, our health, education, assessment and revitalising therapy unit, where we can fully establish the strengths and needs of each individual child.
"This has been more than a school to me. It has been a home and a shelter, a family, a web of connections, a journey, an exploration and discovery into the human spirit. It has been a place where safety from harm and freedom to be myself co-exist. At this school, I have experienced a second childhood, and then grown. I have forged friendships which I will remember as long as I live"
Rosie, student at The New School at West Heath 2006 - 2011
