History of Spring Hill High School
In 2003, Thoughts of Others Ltd recruited Barbara Scrivens to develop an on-site school, Ofsted registered, for the young people in their care. This initiative was to meet the 2004 requirement to make sure that all students with a Statement of Special Educational Needs (SEN) had the support of Ofsted in checking that their school could meet their needs and meet the standards expected of registered schools in Britain.
In 2010, the school developed an off-site school to allow the students to adapt to a routine of ‘going to school’. T It was recognised that Spring Hill High School had developed skills and expertise, shared between teaching and care staff, that benefitted students whose behaviour was challenging in the larger arena of a mainstream secondary school.
This demand also led to setting up the Slade Road site, as an expansion of the provision at Spring Hill High School, to include more ‘day students’. Regular links between the school and the Local Authority made Spring Hill High School well known as a highly specialised educational provision for students with very complex behaviours and very complex needs.
