Hurworth House School provides specialist education for boys and girls with SEMH difficulties and autism. Our staff are highly trained, skilled and experienced in supporting and educating our children, many of whom have a co-morbid diagnosis. The school is registered to provide education to up to 80 students aged between 5 and 19 years. We have a discrete primary provision and separate middle and upper schools.
The school provides a high quality education provision as well as a tailored therapeutic approach for each young person in our care. We recognise each child is an individual and tailor our services to reflect this through the creation of bespoke learning and therapy packages which meet specific needs, abilities and future aspirations. We value and work in partnership with parents, carers and local authorities, demonstrating an open and inclusive approach and inspire children to succeed through education, therapy and positive relationships.
Our students have failed in, or been failed by, a variety of settings prior to their time at Hurworth House School. They arrive very disengaged with education and life after having experienced many crises and trauma. We specialise in supporting students with SEMH and behavioural difficulties, including:
- History of trauma and/or abuse
- Attachment disorders
- Autism and Asperger Syndrome
- Complex needs
- Conduct disorders
- Obsessive compulsive behaviours
- Oppositional Defiant Disorder
- Pathological demand Avoidance
- Foetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder
Hurworth House comprises:
- One main school site
- One registered care home – Fieldfare
Residential care provision
Whilst Hurworth House School is a specialist independent day school, we are able to offer residential care for up to five students at our satellite children’s home. The home, Fieldfare, opened in January 2016, and offers a homely setting and flexible care packages for up to 52 weeks per year.
“Inspiring for Success”
“Hurworth House is unique, we strive to bring inspiration, present endless possibilities and nurture innovation. We recognise and celebrate individuality, developing all aspects of our young people’s characters in order to fulfil their ambitions”
