Welcome to Eastwood Grange School, located in the village of Ashover in the heart of the Derbyshire Peak District. We are an independent school providing specialist education and care services for children and young people aged 5-18 years with a range of needs. These include social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs, complex needs such as attachment disorders, trauma or anxiety, a high functioning autistic spectrum disorder (ASD), pathological demand avoidance (PDA) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Supporting pupils to achieve their potential
At Eastwood Grange School, we are passionate about supporting children and young people to overcome barriers and achieve their potential. We re-engage students with learning and with the opportunities that life has to offer. The children and young people learn to understand and address their mental health difficulties, building the confidence, resilience and life skills for academic success and an independent, fulfilling future.
Learning tailored to each young person
We understand that school and the education services must be done differently for our students and that starts with a careful transition into Eastwood Grange School. Our welcoming and supportive learning environment helps children and young people to overcome any past negative experiences at school, and to become happy and active participants in their education.
We deliver individually tailored learning, designed to recognise the unique start points at which children begin their journey with us. We are committed to empowering our pupils to develop socially and emotionally, guiding them to build the skills and character for positive transitions to further learning or employment.
A highly experienced and dedicated staff team
Our experienced and caring staff team are committed and unswerving in their support of our children and young people. They build the meaningful relationships with pupils that make them feel secure, valued and ready to learn again. We encourage young people to feel optimistic about the future and guide them to work towards their dreams and aspirations.
Located in the stunning, picturesque countryside, Eastwood Grange School benefits from extensive woodland grounds, providing the perfect setting for our outdoor learning programme and therapy sessions.
We would be delighted to welcome you to our school. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to arrange a visit to see Eastwood Grange School for yourself.
