Underley Garden

Underley Garden is a unique setting, providing specialist education, therapy and care for children and young people through the highest levels of expertise. School were judged as Outstanding and in the most recent Care inspection they were judged Good.

Our highly personalised approach ensures a more inclusive life for children & young adults, whatever their range of complex needs: including autism, learning & communication difficulties, and associated needs.

Residential & day places are much sought after: from Primary yearsthrough to Secondary, Post 16 College & Care. In our specialist environment of understanding and calm, our focus is to make learning opportunities appropriate, meaningful and relevant, with an emphasis on social and communication skills.

Our highly trained, experienced staff are dedicated to unpick each pupil’s specific needs and match them with an integrated blend of educational and therapeutic aims which ensures progress and success.

The onsite therapists –which includes Speech and Language, Occupational, Educational Psychologist, Psychiatrist, health and therapy assistants and Learning Disability Nurses – regularly visit each class and home to help ensure our therapeutic approach is embedded across every aspect of Underley Garden life.

Our location, on a private estate close to the Lake District, offers personal space to explore & enjoy the beautiful environment as well as wonderful opportunities to join local community activities such as our recent success as winners of Cumbria in Bloom.
