Wetheringsett Manor School

We welcome you to Wetheringsett Manor School, where we aim to inspire our children to love learning, as they work to develop the essential skills they need for their future lives.  Our students come to us with a variety of social, emotional and mental health needs.  Our aim is to provide an environment in which they can flourish, where they feel safe and supported.

Nick Simpson, who oversees many of the successful Acorn Education and Care Schools, supports the Wetheringsett Manor team, led by David Bishop, who are passionate about giving disadvantaged and vulnerable children the very best education can offer.  Every child in our school should feel that their journey through education is full of wonderful opportunities.

We tailor our curriculum to each child’s needs, making learning as creative as we can along the way.  We treat every student as an individual, nurturing their unique needs to help them overcome any obstacles to learning through our experience.  We believe that we can help every child break through these barriers so that they all have a rewarding journey ahead.
