About Talocher School
Talocher School is a specialist residential school for girls and boys aged 7-19 years with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties (BESD). The school provides a warm, welcoming and relaxed environment for young people who are resident within Priory residential childcare facilities or as day pupils, who are unable to attend mainstream education because of their behavioural, emotional and social difficulties.
Many young people are experiencing a range of difficulties when they first come to the school, which are compounded by their disaffection towards learning, their negative attitudes towards authority and education and a history of interrupted education, including exclusion from mainstream schools. As a result of their difficulties they may have been out of school for long periods of time. Our aim is to enable students to acknowledge and cope with their specific difficulties and assist them in fulfilling their potential through providing positive full-time education.
