Priory Education and Children’s Services is a leading company in the UK offering independent behavioural care for commissioners across the UK.  With over 100 high quality schools, colleges and homes we focus on making a real and lasting difference for everyone we support.

Our children's home is set in a semi-rural location within four acres of beautifully mature grounds.

As Part of the Priory’s specialist Education Service, Darwin House, which has an Ofsted rating of OUTSTANDING is a registered home for up to six young people aged 7 to 19 who diagnosed as being on the autistic spectrum with associated learning difficulties.

We believe Darwin House Children’s Home is a very special home for children and young people where daily living experiences and activities are meaningful and memorable and are designed to meet the needs of individual children in areas that are personal to them.

Children may also have challenging behaviour as a result of their communication difficulties and lack of social understanding.

Within our safe, structured and predictable environment, pupils will develop the skills needed to live as independently as possible, so that they are able to enjoy their lives and make real life choices as they reach adulthood.
