Welcome to the Bilbrough Country Classroom

The Bilbrough Country Classroom’s main ethos is to offer an understanding, caring and safe environment where the fostering of good relationships between adults and children and their peers is paramount. To provide an education to children with severe emotional and behavioural difficulties and to utilise every thing the country side has to offer in order to help these individuals manage to get themselves back on track and to give them a sense of purpose, self belief and to hopefully make them effective members of society.

The Classroom caters for students between the ages of 11 through to 16. We are located in the village of Bilbrough in North Yorkshire and have a fully equipped classroom able to cater for up to six students per day.
