About The Witherslack Group
We are Witherslack Group and we provide inspirational education and care to children and young people, resulting in life changing experiences and countless stories of success.
Witherslack Group is made up of a cast of hundreds, whether it be the teaching, care or therapy staff or the children, young people and their families.
Everyone plays their part as they all combine to realise life changing moments and endless stories of success.
Don’t just take our word for it though, watch our short animation to find our what we are truly about.
We are the leading provider of specialist education and care for children and young people with social, emotional and mental health needs, communication difficulties (autistic spectrum disorder; Asperger’s Syndrome; speech, language and communication needs), ADHD and complex learning needs.
Our track record of success and sector-leading Ofsted judgements has been achieved through an ethos of high aspiration, placement stability through our ‘team around the child’ approach, unique in-school therapy solutions and our inspiring environments. These all combine to optimise life opportunities for children and young people, give confidence to parents and carers, and deliver unmatched value for local authorities.
Our focus on support, care and acceptance allows each young person to develop as an independent individual, equipped with the knowledge, experience and life skills to look to the future with increased confidence and aspiration. We are truly proud of the role we play in changing the lives of young people and helping them to realise their full potential.
Our people are central to everything we do – the dedicated and passionate teaching, care and therapeutic professionals who combine to create a unique and inspirational environment for every child. Their commitment and ability to genuinely connect with each child allows us to achieve long lasting outcomes and fulfil the ambitions of our young people.
The Group’s schools, children’s homes and integrated learning centres provide a complete day, residential and 52 week system of education and care. We also offer our young people the chance to access in-house vocational centres and further education facilities.
Most importantly though, we go the extra mile for all of our young people to ensure that their time in our schools and children’s homes gives them the foundations and ambitions to achieve in their futures and create their own story of success.
