Based in Wales, Headlands School is an independent special school that offers day and residential placements for boys and girls aged 7 to 19 who have difficulty learning as a result of challenging behaviours such as emotional, behavioural and social difficulties, Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Aspergers Syndrome.
We help develop young people’s emotional wellbeing and social skills. Our aim is to develop students to be effective learners so they are able to cope better with the things they find challenging. We do this through a focus on establishing positive and healthy relationships, emotional wellbeing and developing social skills.
We regard ourselves as an attachment aware school. Our approach with our young people is informed by attachment principles which are woven throughout the work all staff carry out within both the education and residential setting.
