Our Ethos

The Yellow House is a small, highly specialist, independent day school on the Essex/Suffolk borders.  We take pupils from Year 9 to Year 12 with multiple and complex needs and including Anxiety Disorder, Autism, ADHD, ODD, OCD and Tourette’s Syndrome.

At The Yellow House School, we deliver a bespoke education for every pupil, developing and expanding their unique talents and helping to bring about positive change.
We offer a specialist education with a strong focus on personal development, attaining GCSE or other qualifications and progressing forward to further education. This academic focus is balanced with our consistent specialist pastoral support.

Our comprehensive therapeutic provision aims to support our pupils through all areas of their needs.  We offer a range of interventions designed to assist with anger, anxiety, low mood and think good, feel good - a basic Cognitive Behaviour Therapy based course.  

Pupils are supported, physically, emotionally and academically in order for them to reach their true potential.

Our Aims

  • To support achievement of academic potential.

  • To support engagement in the therapeutic process.

  • To develop and nurture self-esteem, skills and natural abilities.

  • To motivate pupils towards independence in learning and everyday life.
