Welcome To Our School

School for Inspiring Talents is a growing chain of independent therapeutic day schools in the South West. We are an all-through school that supports young people aged 5-16 who do not find it easy to fit into an existing mainstream educational provision. Working closely with families, it is our intention that every student achieves their full potential in both academic and personal development.

We are passionate about providing the appropriate support, care, nurture, and educational strategies that will allow these amazing young people to succeed in reaching for their dreams. Our aim is to help students achieve the skills and talents they need to flourish and have successful life chances.

We also offer on-going support to make sure that all the recommendations in our individual therapeutic-education care plans are fully embedded and continue to meet all the needs of our students and their families as they move forward in their lives. As a day school we provide an alternative to residential education, and support our students to develop independence and social skills whilst living in their home environment.

Our innovative model directly addresses our students’ unmet needs through nurture, inspiration, motivation, support and care, to enable learning through a very different educational approach. This holistic approach makes the most positive differences to the life chances of students.

School for Inspiring Talents is committed to being an outstanding school that enables our students to develop and realise their ambitions, as exemplified in our school motto….

‘Being The Best We Can Be’

Yours Sincerely,

Pete Jenkins
Executive Principal
