Welcome to High Peak School, Cheshire

Our highly-skilled team aim to support all of our young people towards unrivalled outcomes.

Our young people are aged between 7 to 18 for day school, 9 and 18 for residential school, and may have social emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), moderate learning difficulties (MLD), autism (ASC), Asperger’s and other communication and sensory difficulties. 

We believe that young people with SEMH, ASC and other presentations can continue to develop skills and strategies that enable them to participate as independent, valued citizens, enjoying equal rights, opportunities and a good quality of life. Children and young people in our care will flourish, have fun and achieve.

High Peak School positive expectations:

H - Healthy and well

I - Independent

G - Growth mind-set

H - Happiness


P - Prepared

E - Engaged

A - Aiming high

K - Kindness and compassion

"I just wanted to say how lovely it was to meet you this morning and to see all the work our daughter has been doing with you. We are delighted with the progress our daughter is making and in such a short time too!"
