Mission/focus Highcroft School is a small specialist provision which caters for pupils aged 11-16 years with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties who need a smaller, more structured educational placement in order to develop their true potential. The school in liaison with Keys Child Care provides placements for students who reside in Keys home and day students.
Facilities The school itself is situated in a quiet, rural village in Cockfield, County Durham and offers a nurturing and safe environment for the children attending. The school building offers a pleasant and spacious learning environment and works in partnership with the residential staff to ensure a 24 hour wrap around service is offered to all the young people referred to us for a combined care and education package.
