Residential Educational Provision

Lonsdale School is fortunate to have its own Residential Educational Provision (REP) which was graded 'Outstanding' in its recent inspection.  REP enables us to offer a uniquely special 24 hour educational experience. We have four modern, well equipped flats with especially adapted bathrooms, a homely lounge area and a fully functional kitchen where those important nutritional snacks can be prepared.


Purpose and Aims of REP

To support our pupils to:-

  • Participate in educational learning activities
  • Develop independence through informed choices and practical life skills
  • Achieve autonomy, resilience and well-being
  • Develop friendship opportunities in a safe environment
  • Access a range of social/leisure activities that promote and support interests and creative abilities
  • Interact with peers faced with similar challenges in order to develop social skills and learn appropriate behaviour
  • Prepare for their place in society through a broad educational programme
