Therapists Making The Difference

Therapists Making The Difference

Our focus is on a whole-school development approach and we host a multi-disciplinary and independent support team on-site. This approach has been formulated to assist the child in succeeding academically.

Working Collaboratively

Newton House College teachers are trained specialists in their ability to view each student holistically, which includes an in-depth understanding of both cognitive ability as well as social/emotional development.

Collaboration between teachers and therapists is important when it comes to supporting the success of each student at the school, with teachers also regularly communicating with parents.
