St. John’s offers an inclusive environment for young people whose learning, social, emotional and/or behavioural difficulties that are too complex for many mainstream educational settings to support.

Many learners at St. John’s have complex diagnoses – their needs do not always fit into a single or simple diagnosis, and therefore all learners are individually assessed, and their programmes individually designed to meet their specific needs.

St. John’s supports a wide range of young people and young adults with additional and specific needs.

In particular, we support young people from 5-18 who:

  • Find communication and interaction difficult
  • Have complex behaviours
  • Struggle with their social and emotional functioning
  • Require personalised community-based programmes of study
  • Alongside one of these needs identified above  are also  struggling with issues around identity
  • May require residential provision up to,  and including 52 week provision
