Dove School is an independent special school, established to offer an alternative to mainstream education for pupils who are in the care of Dove Adolescent Services.
Our mission is to offer individual packages of care and education to young people taking into account equality and diversity. These will be developed in partnership with agents from the placing authority.
All pupils have an individual structured programme tailored to their needs, strengths and abilities. This includes 1:1 taught time, vocational and work-based study and learning activities within the homes, overseen by the head teacher.
‘Dove school is different; everyone is treated
with respect and is encouraged to believe they can succeed wherever they are
starting from. The can-do attitude of staff is infectious, and pupils quickly begin to
believe in themselves and learn’.
