Our innovative schools provide a specialist service that enables vulnerable young people to benefit from a holistic and therapeutic approach to education and care whilst gaining nationally recognised qualifications.
At ISP we try to help every young person to reach their academic potential through our therapeutic approach to learning. We understand that every child is unique. Our teachers, carers, social workers and therapists work together to provide individually designed educational and therapy programmes that truly turn young people’s lives around.
We specialise in supporting young people who find it particularly difficult to access a conventional school environment due to social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) and associated speech, language and communication needs, reach their full potential.
Rated by Ofsted as good, with outstanding features, the school is split across two sites in Kent, each offering their own unique setting and features.
Our Sittingbourne site is a traditional Victorian church school building within an urban environment, whilst our Teynham farm occupies a purpose-built timber barn surrounded by open fields, with vegetable gardens, farm animals and an engineering workshop.
