Our Ethos

The Bilbrough Country Classroom’s main ethos is to offer an understanding, caring and safe environment where the fostering of good relationships between adults, children and their peers is paramount. To provide an education to children with severe emotional and behavioural difficulties and to utilise everything 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 and self belief and to hopefully make them effective members of society.
bilbrough country classroom ethos

The Bilbrough Country Classroom seeks to offer high quality provision for students with a statement of special educational needs or otherwise that names EOTAS arrangements as part of their provision in part 4 of the statement and students who require an alternative form of provision to meet their needs. 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.

The Bilbrough Country Classroom also has approximately 6 acres of orchards and paddocks where our horses and ponies are kept as well as our free-range chickens. Students who take up a place with us are expected to take responsibility for these animals as well as our other many varied small animals and dogs. Such animal husbandry is carried out in a very controlled and safe environment.

We have set up the Country Classroom to help people learn and develop in a caring, supportive, holistic and positive learning environment.
