Eastwood Grange School is a specialist day school located in the village of Ashover, near Chesterfield for boys and girls aged 5-18 years. The pupils exhibit a variety of severe and complex educational, social, emotional and mental health difficulties, which have impeded personal developmental and educational success. Many of the pupils have a number of diagnoses. Our pupils have failed in, or have been failed by, a variety of settings before coming to Eastwood Grange School. They arrive at Eastwood Grange very disengaged with education and life after having experienced many break downs and trauma.
Visits to the school are strongly recommended. Please contact Jayne Bennett on 01246 590255 to discuss further.
