Success through learning opportunities

Providing students with the security and support they need to overcome past
trauma and transcend previous limitations. Through clearly identified
interests, we nurture a passion for learning that develops lifelong learners.

About ELS

Therapeutic learning and intentional parenting form the core of all our work.
This allows us to personalise teaching and learning to each individual student’s needs.

Our tailored programmes maximise learning opportunities around areas of need or interest,
whilst simultaneously helping students process their emotions.

This provides every learner with a flexible, safe, fun, alternative learning environment.

Why choose us

All children have a right to a full, enriched education whatever their circumstances. We hold high aspirations for our students and focus on what can be achieved: not what the restrictions may be. To achieve this we offer a range of educational opportunities: our day special schools, Care Farms as well as Outdoor Education opportunities.


A proven approach

Enhanced Learning Services provide a broad syllabus following key skills set by National Curriculum, small classes and individual educational programmes. We develop creative and flexible learning programmes that are regularly monitored and reviewed, ensuring that learning is fun and effective. When a student joins us they participate in a full educational assessment, which underpins their educational plan and builds a bespoke curriculum with a focus to provide ‘success through learning opportunities’.
