About Sheridan School

Sheridan School is a specialist residential school for boys and girls aged 10 to 16 who have social, emotional and behavioural difficulties with learning difficulties including autistic spectrum disorders. Many of our young people have experienced considerable disruption to their education as a result of their difficulties and may lack confidence in their own abilities. We aim to nurture and develop academic skills and self-belief through an integrated holistic approach centred on individual education, care and therapy to help our young people to thrive effectively in an ever demanding and complex society. This is achieved through personalised multidisciplinary assessments and highly individual education and care programmes.

Our ethos is grounded in valuing individuals in order to develop an appropriate profile of personal qualities and values including reflective thinking, self-belief and through engagement in a positive and appropriate curriculum to ensure that positive outcomes are achieved.

We provide:

  • A positive ethos which celebrates and rewards success and progress
  • A culture in which students feel safe, secure and valued
  • A multidisciplinary approach integrating education, care and therapy programmes
  • Individualised programmes for education and therapy
  • Small teaching groups
  • A framework where students can learn to take responsibility for the control of their own behaviours
  • High staff to pupil ratios
  • A tranquil environment where students can thrive
  • A residential key worker for each student

Sheridan School is registered for up to 40 students, with up to 26 residential places. Residential placements are flexible and can be between 38 and 52 weeks.
