At Inscape House School, no two learning programmes are the same. Because no two learners are the same. We take a creative and personalised approach so that every student can learn at their level, in a way that suits their needs.
From the curriculum to classroom design, we think about every detail to help our learners thrive. And we work with our students to be as flexible and responsive as possible. Because we know that small adjustments make a big difference.
Inscape House School's vision
Together we learn, grow and succeed. Together, conquering barriers and surpassing expectations.
Inscape House School's mission
Together we provide opportunities to promote independence and teach life-changing skills; we engage, we support and we motivate to equip our unique young people to face life’s challenges.
What to expect at Inscape House School
Our teaching methods
We approach teaching in a flexible way to meet the needs of our learners. For instance, students might have their own timetables and one-to-one tuition, balanced with group work and activities. Our class sizes are purposefully small – never more than eight students. And each group has a teacher and educational assistants who work with the students every day.
Positive behavioural support
Our approach is positive and proactive, never punitive. We support students in understanding their emotions and help them learn coping strategies to handle all kinds of situations.
We shape learning programmes to the student while offering a broad range of subjects from the national curriculum. But it’s not just about academic achievement. We also teach communication, social and life skills. Read more about the curriculum at Inscape House School.
Creative ways to support learning
We really get to know our students and the things they’re interested in. Those special interests can be a great way to help students with their personal progress. We’ve found all kinds of ways to engage our students, from gardening and horticulture, to falconry and owl therapy.
Increasing independence and participation
At Inscape young people have a voice in their learning. They can set their own targets, contribute to their annual progress review, and take part in our school council.
Positive mental health and wellbeing
We take a whole school approach to managing positive mental health and wellbeing for our students. We have two full-time qualified counsellors in our team, mental health first aiders on site, and access to the wider Together Trust family of therapeutic support. Find out more about therapy support at Inscape.
Partnership with parents
We change lives when we work together. That’s why we work alongside our students and their families to develop strategies for all aspects of their lives.
Support for learning
All our students receive a universal level of support for learning. But additional support is there when they need it as part of our three-tier support model. It’s common for students to move between tiers depending on what’s happening in their lives.
