Head Teacher’s Message


At New Heights, we endeavour to raise the aspirations of our young people through a trauma-informed, emotionally friendly approach implemented to remove the barriers some of our young people have to learning.

Through a caring and understanding assessment process we try to uncover the need behind the behaviours which have put their place in mainstream at risk, by teaching self-regulation strategies alongside delivering a broad and balanced curriculum.

Our ethos is simple: young people can only learn when their basic needs are being met and understood.

The mental health and emotional wellbeing of all of our school community is at the heart of our practice.
James McDonald
