Wings School Cumbria balances a traditional curriculum with ensuring that the individual needs of each child and young person are met.
The school offers an assessment followed by a gradual transition for children and young people in to school life and their new residential setting. Where children or young people have initial difficulties in settling in to a learning environment, lessons can be delivered within the residential areas until they are ready.
The school is set within extensive grounds, both the grounds and the school buildings lend themselves to both on and off-site learning. Facilities include full sized playing pitches, a sports hall, moto-cross & mountain bike tracks and our on-site farm with access to equestrian facilities, to name but a few.
Wings Cumbria provides residential provision with individually tailored support. The homes sleep up to six young people in their own, personalised bedrooms with newly refurbished and decorated communal living spaces. Staff are trained to support young people integrating from a residential school setting in to a semi-supported residential setting.
There is an emphasis on maximising individual potential to provide each young person with strategies to successfully progress into adult life. The range of activities and services young people can access is increased to help develop their confidence.
The clinical team includes a Clinical Psychologist, Educational Psychologist Speech and Language Therapist, and a School Nurse.
