About Brompton Hall School
Brompton Hall School is a strong special school with a history of ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ Ofsted inspections. The school is heavily over-subscribed and provides a high quality educational experience for all learners with statemented needs or Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs) from North Yorkshire and beyond. Our learners access a wide range of qualifications including GCSE, BTEC, Entry Level and Level 1 through bespoke curriculum pathways.
Our core aim is for all learners to leave Brompton Hall with the qualifications they need to follow their post-16 pathways into employment, apprenticeship programmes or further education. We are strongly committed to working in partnership with parents, learners and a large range of support agencies including Children’s Services, CAMHS, Speech & language therapists, etc. to ensure learners’ needs are effectively met. We expect parents and carers to support our belief in the value of education and to support our demands for high standards of behaviour.
Brompton Hall provides a calm, caring and learning focused environment where learners are well taught, through both our academic curriculum, as well as our enhanced 24hour curriculum which addresses their social, emotional and mental health needs. Every day, our learners are supported in developing their key skills, attitudes and resilience, which help them become confident, independent members of their communities. We are very proud of the work we do at Brompton Hall.
We try very hard to enable our learners, who have had great difficulty in their previous schools, become successful learners - and to enjoy the process. All the learners that attend the school are individuals with their own issues. However, we want everyone to be able to socialise and enjoy each other's company, to progress as individuals, educationally and personally, and to maximise their prospects in later life.
"Brompton Hall is a school with high standards of teaching, care and behaviour. It sets out its standards very clearly for all to see. With its open door policy to enable parents and other people responsible for caring for children to raise concerns and give complements at any time. On the units the boys live in a family atmosphere." Louise Potter (Parent)
"Leaders and managers are committed to providing pupils with excellent care so that they all have positive experiences and achieve their potential. There are good outcomes for pupils who have struggled previously in other schools and have had to cope with difficulties in their home lives." Ofsted February 2017
