Owlswick | Compass Schools

  • Location: East Sussex

About Our School

Owlswick is located in Kingston, Lewes, East Sussex. It is a mile away from the town of Lewes and 7 miles from the south coast and the vibrant city of Brighton. We offer placements to young people from any part of the country with the majority coming from London and the South East.

Owlswick School provides specialist education and support to young people who have social, emotional, cognitive and sensorial needs or may have been assessed as having a form of Neurodiversity or some form of Complex Trauma. All young people placed with us will have an Education Health Care Plan and may not be able to attend mainstream education at this time. Our aim is to provide a family style home where young people can also receive their education on site. Education is provided by an experienced teaching team who understand the barriers young people face in accessing school and learning when they have difficult and challenging life experiences, coupled with emotional and behavioural issues.

“Our aim in both home and school is for young people to achieve their aspirations and the best possible outcomes for the future. We aim for young people at Owlswick to grow and develop self-confidence, personal resilience and a positive sense of self-worth.”
