Northern House School Wokingham is a school for young people with Social, Emotional and mental health needs.  We work together with parents, external professionals and young people building strong relationships and helping them realise their aspirations and goals and lead full and purposeful lives.

 

We believe in supporting young people according to their specific needs to enable them to build trusting and healthy relationships, make progress with learning, to manage behaviours and personal accomplishments.

 

It can be challenging, but it is hugely rewarding seeing the progress of our young people.  Every day provides both challenges and rewards, whether it is supporting a young person in the classroom or organising an external activity.

 

Safeguarding the wellbeing of our young people is our priority at all times.
