Mount Tamar School

Mount Tamar School is a specialist residential school for young people aged 5 to 16 who have behaviour, emotional and social difficulties. We also have students with complex learning difficulties  and autism.

We strive to provide the very best educational experience so that all our students can reach their full potential as they become responsible and proactive members of the community.

Mount Tamar School offers a quality learning environment with all students being supported by a team of experienced staff dedicated to sustaining a school where excellent teaching enables students to develop their abilities to the full.  

Our exciting curriculum allows students to achieve in a range of valuable qualifications and gain a broad and balanced education. Students study the full range of subjects and then are able to specialise in their ‘Focus Subjects’ as they move through the school. Accreditation is key, and begins using the ASDAN Awards Scheme in Key Stage 2. Students then access a range of qualifications from Entry Pathways, Btec to GCSE allowing them to build self-esteem and confidence through achievement.

We respect the critical partnership with parents, carers and the wider community in developing young people’s social, emotional, physical and intellectual qualities and we are uncompromising in our pursuit of the best for all.

We aim to make education real, interesting, relevant and practical. With an ethos of learning outside the classroom, outdoor education and forest schools we seek to develop social and emotional aspects of learning.
