With two decades of experience as leaders in supportive education, our team have opened the Ellern Mede School, Friary Hall to give children and young people, with complex social, emotional, and mental health needs and other special educational needs, the opportunity to receive an outstanding, personalised education. Friary Hall benefits from the unique capabilities and experience of our dedicated staff which offers a bespoke service, tailored to the needs of every student.
Many young people find mainstream schools extremely stressful places for a variety of reasons. This results in a negative experience of school and learning. Students may have underlying social, emotional and mental health difficulties; they might find the curriculum and expectations too demanding; they may have difficulty in expressing their worries and concerns and thus they may be at the point of dropping out of education. Every young person’s needs may be manifested in different ways.
Our supportive, holistic, and experienced ‘Outstanding’ OFSTED-rated team prides itself on enabling the deep analysis of each student’s barriers to learning. In partnership with parents, community agencies and our therapeutic professionals, we are able to put in place appropriate and individual education plans, enabling students to achieve their potential and to re-engage with successful learning. Where students have already identified special needs, we will work to put in place an educational, social and emotional plan which will enable them to become successful lifelong learners.
Ellern Mede Friary Hall is committed to deliver the best outcomes for young people, their families and the community as a whole.
We provide excellent education in a calm and inclusive environment. Our new site in the quiet residential area of Whetstone, North London, offers modern amenities and a comfortable and secure learning space. The buildings and outside space have been designed for our unique approach to therapeutic education, by a team who have strong operational experience in providing buildings that meet the needs of children and young people.
Our small class sizes, personalised curriculum and careful attention to each pupil’s specific needs makes our approach to education, therapies and extra-curricular activities uniquely successful. Our students reach higher, achieve their ambitions, succeed in exams and find their lives transformed.
Ellern Mede Friary Hall offers so much more than therapeutic education when necessary. We have access to a highly skilled multidisciplinary team trained in providing psychological, counselling and coaching services including support to the whole family.
