Therapy, Health and Personal Development

Our onsite therapy and health professionals work in partnership with our education and residential staff to provide integrated support and intervention to the pupils and students at St Mary’s.

This allows us to ensure that their health and personal development is exceptionally well supported. Our therapists work throughout the school and college and within the residential house and they also support pupils and students in the community to facilitate learning, develop their social and emotional skills and to promote independence and build resilience. Therapists provide in-depth assessment, individual therapy programmes, small group therapy sessions, assistance in the classroom to support access to learning and also residential support. The Therapy teams work collaboratively with staff and parents and carers to develop our pupils' and students' skills which will support them in adulthood.

All therapists are registered with the Health Care Professional Council (HCPC).
