About Our School

Coastal Park School was established in 2001 and is registered with the DFE as an Independent Special School for pupils with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.

The school provides a placement for pupils who live in care at Coastal Park and offers day placements to pupils from the local community. The school offers 52 week residential placements, with three sites with staff ratios relevant to the pupil’s learning needs.

Our highly trained and experienced education team work closely with parents, carers, multi-agency professionals, key workers and programme psychologists to holistically support children and young people with a range of challenging presentations, particularly Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) and attachment difficulties. We have a relentless drive to achieve the very best possible outcomes for every one of our students.
