8 TO 19 - SCHOOLS AND CHILDREN’S SERVICES
We aim to provide the best possible care, as well as the best possible education in our vibrant and thriving schools. Our schools are dedicated to creating environments that are safe, inspire confidence and encourage positive learning. Here, individual plans of care and education are supported with balanced daily experiences, and of course, access to the highest levels of support from our team of specialists when required.
Both our schools offer 52-weeks-per-year residential and educational provision with the option of flexible packages for individuals, depending on their needs. Each school supports children and young people with complex needs and behaviours that may challenge, associated particularly with a learning disability, often together with autism.
Fullerton House School
Situated in the village of Denaby Main, near Doncaster, Fullerton House School has a real ‘heart of the community’ feel. The school supports children and young people from 8 to 19 years of age.
Wilsic Hall School
Situated in its own picturesque and highly therapeutic 14 acre countryside setting five miles south of Doncaster, Wilsic Hall School supports young people from 11 to 19 years of age.
Both schools offer great opportunities for the learning of vital life skills through meaningful activity in complementary settings which can meet a wide range of complex needs.
18 TO 25 - SPECIALIST COLLEGES
Our college campuses at Fullerton House and Wilsic Hall offer positive and empowering education and care, 52 weeks of the year. Representing the next step to greater independence, we create bespoke education, training and wider curricular programmes around the young person’s needs and goals. All within a safe, secure and caring environment. And for those coming from in our schools, we balance new challenges with the reduced stress of a familiar setting, with familiar faces.
18 plus - ADULT SERVICES
Moving from children’s to adult services can be a difficult time. Whether people move on to our adult services from one of our schools or from home or another provider, making this transition as seamless as possible is a key foundation for positive future progress.
This purpose-built service, with its spacious, calm, green space setting is designed to provide a unique therapeutic environment - for some, an ideal open alternative to hospital - where complex needs can be thoroughly assessed, understood and addressed.
A wide range of progressive and meaningful activities can be engaged in on-site and through easy access to the local area and all its amenities. The modern accommodation at Hesley Village is made up of single person flats plus three-bedroom apartments for those who prefer to share.
These surround the active but safe village centre, complete with café, shop, post office and community centre which together with local opportunities, provides a firm foundation for learning and sustainable skills development.
Designed to provide young adults with access to all the facilities and support they need, Low Laithes is a purpose-built environment that provides a foundation again, for skills development
for increasing levels of sustainable future independence. Every person here has their own modern self-contained flat and access to a range of both on-site and off-site activities.
This small group of traditional properties have been adapted and extended to offer fully community-based adult residential care in the small market town of Thorne. Everyone at King Street has their own room with en-suite bathroom, and easy access to a host of amenities on their doorstep providing meaningful activities and learning and vocational opportunities.
In line with the Transforming Care agenda, our latest service, Copperclay Mews, has been designed to support adults with learning disabilities in high quality accommodation in a beautiful community setting. People supported within the services here have ready access to their local community whilst living in single person ground floor accommodation with private gardens as well as an outdoor activity area.
