Ethos and Values
“The David Lewis School is fantastic with approachable and supportive staff. I couldn’t wish for my daughter to be in a better school”.
– Parent of a David Lewis School pupil.
We are here to help our young people prepare for the future, whether that means moving on to our College or elsewhere. We create tailored programmes of learning that support the development of an individual’s confidence and independence.
For each young person, we start by jointly understanding:
What they want to get out of the learning programme
- What current skills they possess
- What they enjoy and what might worry them
- Their needs for therapies and support
Once we have this knowledge, we can work with that young person to enable them to:
Learn how to do more things and new things on their own
- Develop their social skills and make new friends
- Improve their communication skills to ensure that their current need is understood
- Fulfil their potential
At David Lewis, our learning environments take many forms. The environment is relaxed and our programmes are designed to make the learning experience fun. Our outstanding range of indoor and outdoor facilities bring education and learning to life.
Learning extends beyond the setting of the school; we offer a selection of residential holidays, activities and leisure trips to contribute to a complete learning experience and to support our young people to grow in every way.
