Northleigh House School was established in 2012 to address the growing need for a safe, calm and progressive learning environment for secondary aged children who, mainly as a result of being bullied or perceiving themselves to have been so, cannot study in a large mainstream setting.
To cite Edward De Bono: " We know very well that progress is due to creativity; to looking at things in a different way; to doing things differently; to putting things together to deliver new values." This is how we have established the learning environment at Northleigh House School.
By “doing things differently" we are able to help each young person to regain their inner confidence and to begin, again, to trust other people. We promote a culture where every member of the school, whether student or staff, is valued, respected and plays a vital role in the development of Northleigh's community.
As we are a small school, based in a beautiful country house, we have the freedom to enable each student to develop in whatever way suits them. The under-pinning atmosphere at Northleigh is one of absolute positive regard for every student: kindness, inclusion and respect for each individual's differences.
