Wetheringsett Manor School opens its doors to support young people with social, emotional and mental health needs

We are a new specialist school that has recently opened in Stowmarket, Suffolk, to support young people with social, emotional and mental health needs between the ages of 11-18 years old.

The school, in Grade II listed former rectory Wetheringsett Manor, is set in beautiful grounds and has been refurbished with state of the art facilities to provide an inspiring and therapeutic learning environment for young people.

We provide a variety of learning spaces suitable for one-to-one and small group teaching and classes have a maximum of six children with one teacher and a teaching assistant, with additional support from a team of specialist staff – including speech and language therapists, educational psychologists and occupational therapists.

Commenting on the opening of Wetheringsett Manor School, Headteacher David Bishop said, “We are delighted to be welcoming our first students and supporting them on their education journey, helping to unlock both their personal and academic potential. Our traditional manor house has expanded to include a modern classroom block with everything teachers and students could need. We believe in delivering an exceptional education and to do this we’ve invested in creating an environment to inspire learning, which, coupled with our professional teaching team, gives our students a first class start in life.”
