Therapeutic children’s homes & schools

North Lakes have four care homes and two school sites rated Outstanding. We use the Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity and Empathy (PACE) model, therapeutic parenting and whole brain child approach in our care. We facilitate opportunities for young people to thrive with 1:1 psychotherapy, specialist staff training and therapeutic consultation.

Pupils achieve higher than expected rates of progress and the quality of the teaching in the nurture group is highlighted by Ofsted. Our all male service specialises in returns to family and foster care after a period of stability and reflection or transitions post 16 to local colleges.
