Ofsted has assessed Owlswick as being an ’outstanding’ children’s home in 2016

Welcome to Owlswick School and Children’s Home

Owlswick is an independent school and home where children and young people can be assured that they will be nurtured, supported and valued as individuals. We aim for everyone to achieve their ambitions and prepare for life as young independent adults.

We provide care and education services for young people who have mild learning difficulties, emotional/social issues and associated challenging behaviours. Placements are provided for young people aged between 10 – 19 for both boys and girls.

Leaders and managers continually strive to improve the service. The leadership inspires the staff to achieve the most positive outcomes for young people, some of whom have poor pre-placement history, for example non-school attenders.

Ofsted Care Inspection Report, 2016

We have both an outstanding education and care staff team who are highly trained and experienced in working with the young people who live and receive their education at Owlswick.
Our staff are also committed to enabling each young person in our care and education to achieve their full potential in a stimulating and caring environment.
