About us

ISP school is based on a beautiful farm in Kent and provides specialist education for 7-16 year olds with social, emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH), as well as those with complex communication and interaction, cognition and learning needs.

Our school is a part of the Polaris Community, which is one of the largest communities of children's service providers in the UK. We are passionate about what we do and that's providing a high-quality, personalised education for children and young people. We take a holistic view of each of our students, offering individual care and a complete range of support that’s constantly evolving with their needs.

Our vision

Our main goal at the ISP school is to help children to reach their full potential. We support our pupils as individuals so that they can achieve the very best for themselves and their future. The very core of our work with children is driven by six fundamental values.

A unique school

We are an Independent Specialist Provision, working with children who have primarily social, emotional and mental health needs (SEMH). The children we support have a wide range of needs and so we tailor our services to the individual, providing attachment and trauma-informed care, a safe and nurturing environment and a passionate, collaborative team of teachers, education support staff, therapists and speech and language therapists.
