At Blue Mountain Education, we believe that every looked-after child deserves a safe and nurturing environment to heal and thrive. Our trauma-informed school, operated by Blue Mountain Homes, offers just that. With a focus on personalised learning, we deliver bespoke packages of Personal Interest Education (PI-E) that are tailored to each child’s unique interests, strengths, and learning style. By wrapping the curriculum around the young person, we create a meaningful and engaging learning experience that is relevant to their lives. Our approach is designed to support each young person academically, emotionally, and socially, helping them reach their full potential. Blue Mountain Education is a school that understands and supports looked-after children in their healing and growth.
Blue Mountain Education is an independent Trauma Informed School that offers bespoke education to looked after children in the care of Blue Mountain Homes. We’re proud to say that our school has been rated “Good” by Ofsted, and we currently operate across four locations, catering to up to 15 young people.
Our school is specifically designed for young people with social emotional behaviour difficulties and mild learning disabilities, many of whom may have previously had negative experiences with education. At Blue Mountain Education, we believe in a personalised approach to learning that starts from each young person’s unique starting point.
Our experienced staff work closely with our students to create individual learning plans that take into account their specific needs and interests. This tailored approach ensures that our students can progress at their own pace and receive the support they need to succeed both academically and emotionally.
We understand that every young person is different, and that’s why we are dedicated to providing an inclusive and nurturing environment that promotes healing, resilience, and growth.
This includes providing a calm and predictable atmosphere, minimizing sensory triggers, and creating spaces where students can feel safe and secure.
