Providing Positive Experiences for Children

Welcome to the Holly House School Residential Unit


If you use the residential facility you will be allocated a space on one of the two units this will depend on you age when you access the unit

You will eat breakfast and tea on the units with other pupils and the care staff.

We have accommodation for up to 8 pupils per night, which is done between the 4 single rooms and the 4 shared rooms on the two units. We have a TV lounge and kitchen on each unit as well as a positive play area on the upstairs unit. On the lower unit we have snooker/ pool  tables, air hockey table and table football available.

The school is situated next to the living units and provides the National Curriculum for up to 5 class groups. There are up to 8 pupils per class and each class has a teacher and teaching assistants who provide support.

Holly House is a friendly place where youngsters are able to deal with their problems and prepare themselves for their future after they move on from us.

We treat everyone as an individual and produce individual care plans and individual IEPs and IRPs to meet your needs. We have a dedicated staff team who goal is to give you every opportunity to have “a new beginning” to help you “BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE” and to help you work through any problems you may have and to prepare you for the future. We want to help you make those changes in your life which will help you to be happy and successful.
