Here in the Virtual School we are passionate believers that every young person in our care should enjoy their learning and achieve their true potential. We believe in education in the broadest sense of the word and believe that every child not only has the has the right to good academic education but also to those activities that enrich life such as art, music, culture and travel.
Our team of highly skilled and dedicated professionals have the highest expectations for all our young people. They work relentlessly with children, young people, teaching staff, foster carers, social care staff, health staff and more to ensure that everyone else has these high aspirations too.
Equally, we believe in making sure that the right support is in place where it is needed to help children succeed. We know that the best way of ensuring the right level of challenge and support for all our children is through listening carefully and working together.
This website is a gateway to us to access advice, guidance and resources. It is also an opportunity to get in touch with us, join us in our activities and training and also to tell us your views.
We hope you find it useful whether you are one of our children and young people or a professional working with them.
