The Lodge

The Lodge opened in April 2007. The original farmhouse was extended during the 1980s. This new building resulted in a luxurious country residence constructed in the attractive local limestone. We have converted this to provide ample living accommodation for our Key Stage 3 pupils with a ‘homely’ feel. The Lodge faces the front of the school with views across formal gardens.

 
 

The students on The Lodge are older and more independent than those on The Bungalow but younger and without the freedoms afforded to older boys on the adjacent Loft house group.

  • Individual music lessons
  • Trampoline Club
  • Fishing
  • Swimming
  • Golf
  • Planet Bounce
  • Sports Hall sessions
  • Cinema trips
  • Rutland Water trips
  • Kayaking
  • Shopping to Peterborough and Leicester
 

Core Aims

 
  • All students treated individually
  • Carefully planned structure and routine with flexibility to meet individual needs
  • Each student is seen as a young adult striving for success
  • Talking and self reflection is key
  • Calm and reflective environment
  • Protect students and do our best to keep them safe
  • Emphasis placed on laughter and humour
  • We want students to learn to manage and take responsibility for their own behaviour
