Arc School Ansley is an independent day school near Nuneaton in Warwickshire, for children and young people aged between 11 and 16 with social, emotional & behavioural problems. The school supports pupils with various educational and social needs, some of which are associated with the challenges of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, attachment disorder, autism, dyslexia and dyspraxia.
The school also offers support for pupils to come to the school towards the end of Key Stage 2 should it be felt that it would benefit their transition in to Key Stage 3. The pupils who come to the school all have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), sometimes still referred to as a Statement of Special Educational Needs (SSENs).
This is what parents and professionals are saying about Arc School Ansley...
“L joined Arc School Ansley and I always knew in my heart that he would benefit immensely from a school such as this. He has thrived since coming to this school. I am so pleased with all of the support he has received so far. L struggled to adapt to the change at first but his new keyworker has worked very well alongside him. L seems to be very happy at home and in school. I cannot thank all of the staff enough for helping to shape L into the wonderful young man he is becoming and also in assisting to empower and promote his well-being and raise his self-esteem further. Thank you all dearly.”

“S has settled in extremely well at Ansley in comparison to the difficulties at his previous school and taking into consideration the amount of school moves he has had. We have had very limited incidents when he has not wanted to come into school which in itself speaks volumes. I feel that the teaching and support staff have a good understanding of his personality and the best way to work with him. Having received his detailed school report in July, this gives us a clear picture of his strengths and weakness and what subjects he most enjoys.”

“Since E has been going to Arc School Ansley we have noticed he seems more settled. The progress he has made is amazing considering he wouldn't even sit in a classroom. He talks about school, his teachers and other pupils which is an improvement because he's not really interested in people. He has shown interest in subjects that I would never have thought he would enjoy. Thank you.”
