Eastward House School - a school for every child.

When it comes to education, one size does not fit all. Every child is different, with their own unique set of talents and needs. Good education is about understanding each pupil, adapting the teaching to suit them, and helping them to become rounded, confident individuals who are ready to take on the world.

For many children, exams are an important part of this journey, but education is about so much more than only jumping through these hoops.
Some children need a little more support to help them achieve; many need a more personalised approach with specialist support and some need accelerated learning. Eastward House School was created so every pupil gets the best possible education, whatever their needs. We support children who are autistic, have school avoidance difficulties, or who have learning challenges associated with dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia and ADHD.

In a calm, nurturing environment we pride ourselves on a caring family ethos, excellent levels of support and a bespoke education plan for each pupil. We teach pupils from age 7 (Year 3) to  age 16 (the end of Year 11) and have a strong focus on preparing them for life when they leave us, whether they are planning further education or want to enter the workplace.

"Education doesn't need to be reformed -it needs to be transformed. The key to this transformation is not to standardise education, but to personalise it, to build achievement on discovering the individual talents of each student and to put students in an environment where they want to learn and where they can naturally discover their true passions."
