The Sixth Form Centre of Alderwasley Hall School has achieved their third consecutive ‘Outstanding’ grade for the care and support of young people placed with them on a residential basis.
Accommodation for older students, aged 16 to 19 years, comprises of two houses, one located on the Sixth Form Centre site and another located just down the road in Matlock.
Inspectors found staff to be passionate about ensuring young people had long term positive outcomes, which was reflected in the close working with education and therapy staff and the fact that most young people went on to higher or further education or joined apprenticeship schemes. They also commented on the effectiveness of the staff in working with young people with complex mental health conditions.
In September the residential home on the site of Alderwasley Hall School,for students aged between 5 and 16 years, was also graded ‘Outstanding’ for the third time in a row.
