Here is the school entrances from the road and the main reception.
The Canteen for Breakfast and Lunch
The Canteen is where you can have some breakfast before school starts, a fantastically varied lunch or if you are staying on the house you will have your tea here. See the website for updated menus each week!
The Reception and Meeting Rooms
These are the areas that the office staff work and where meetings take place.
This is an area of the school for some young people who really struggle to particpate in the larger classes. If you access this area then you will be taught in really small groups in these rooms but you will also access lessons in the main school area. For more information about the LINK access the Classes area and take a look at the page.
Therapies, Counselling and Nurture Base
We are extremely lucky to have supportive interventions focusing on Mental Health, Well-Being and Social Communication. Students are referred to our highly trained staff by external agencies, parents and school staff for the extra support they need.
Our 24 hour curriculum is available for the majority of students. They can stay for a maximum of two nights and supports there social interactions and develops resilience in the community. Each student has their own bedroom and is staffed by experienced members of the school team. For further information contact the school.
Key Stage 2
At Archers Brook we are lucky enough to have Key Stage 2 provision. It is only for Year 5's and 6's with maximum amount of eight young people. This provision is hugely successful for supporting students who have struggled to access mainstream environments.
The school looks like a small version of a mainstream school. The environment has been specially designed to support the learning of all students. Classroom environments are specifically layed out in a low sensory way and corridors are well lit and neutral. All students follow a full curriculum from Y5 to Y11.
Archers Brook has a great outdoor environment. The space is used for Forest Schools, Horticulture, Sport and Break Times. We are lucky to have lots of wildlife in our pond as well!
