Welcome to School for Inspiring Talents – Newton Abbot

College House is in Newton Abbot. Our school has five classes, therapy rooms and quiet spaces, all set in spacious grounds for students to enjoy outdoor learning and play.

Welcome to College House

 

At College House we have five classes of students aged between 10 and 16 years old. Classrooms are close to sensory rooms, reflective spaces and harbours (calm rooms). As well as taking part in their class-based lessons each day, children have plenty of outdoor space available in the garden area where they can play, and enjoy Forest School outdoor learning – making dens, bush craft and campfires! We also have regular visits from Chris, our Therapeutic Outdoor Practitioner and Blu, our very special therapy dog.

 

Staff take every opportunity to build positive relationships and to make sure we are engaging children in their areas of interest, as well as planning for the next stage of their journey, whatever that may be.
