to our School

Welcome to Ancora House School

Ancora House School is a short stay provision; we provide education and support to young people who are admitted to Ancora House. Ancora House is the North West Tier 4  in-patient service for young people between the ages of 13 and 18 years old. 

At Ancora House School we believe that every child and young person deserves an education that enables them to fulfil their potential; many of the children and young people we support are facing major challenges in their lives and it is our role to ensure that barriers are addressed and that all students make rapid personal, social and educational progress.

Whatever the circumstances surrounding admission, Ancora House School offers a safe an friendly environment for young people to continue with their education. The team of teachers, teaching assistants, transition staff and administration staff work closely with home schools and colleges so that young people remain engaged with their learning despite their admission to hospital.

Ancora House School also provides education for children and young people in the Cheshire West and Chester locality who cannot access their mainstream school because of their medical needs; this element of the school operates from our community site at Castle Park, Frodsham. The community site has close working partnerships with our locality schools.

Through the work of our experienced transition support team, skilled Post -16 advice and guidance and our social and emotional well-being curriculum, we aim for children and young people to leave our service well prepared for the next stage of their lives.
