Ramsden Hall Academy works with up to 90 secondary-age students who have a statement Special Educational Needs or an Educational Health Care Plan (EHC Plan) for Social Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) issues offering residential provision. From September 2016 the school will open a Sixth Form and admit Year 6 students.

The school aims to support all students with their specific needs and barriers to learning to enable them to reach their full potential both academically and in terms of managing their behaviour.  This is achieved by providing high quality teaching and learning and by using assessment, engagement and developing educational programmes. The school works actively with students and their parents/carers to ensure positive outcomes for all.

Focused attention is paid to the student’s individual needs through an integrated therapeutic approach to the curriculum. The school works with families to put in place aspirational targets for for all learners and always celebrate the achievements of students to reinforce their success and achievement.

Any of the students demonstrating the skills and attainment required to successfully reintegrate into a mainstream school will be supported in the transition.  Families will also receive support and guidance on how to best work with the school to help ensure their child is successful. The school aims for all students to enter further education, training or employment on exit from the school.
