Residential students make significant progress with regards to their emotional wellbeing, educational achievement, self-esteem, confidence and independence skills. A parent who responded to a recent school survey said, ‘My son has grown from a timid insecure little boy to a young man who can confidently express opinions and has developed a true level of self-esteem.’

Wilds Lodge School is an independent specialist boarding and day provision for boys with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties aged between 5 and 18.  All the students at the school have a Statement of Special Educational Needs (SEN) or Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP).  It was established in 2007 and aims to place an equal emphasis on the educational, social and psychological development of our students.  The key to the success of the school is a strong ethos, developed by a highly experienced and capable staff, and the strength of the relationships between the staff and the students.


The school draws nationally from Local Education Authorities and currently has under 85 students on role of which a small percentage are day boys. It offers fortnightly boarding provision although in practice, most return to their families weekly.  The students are grouped into five residential houses with close regard to their chronological age, their social needs and their personal maturity. The main needs of pupils with SEN at the school are social, emotional and behavioural difficulties, Autistic Spectrum Disorder and Moderate Learning Difficulties.
