Harnessing Potential: The Vision of Changing Lives School

At Changing Lives School, the motto is simple yet profound: "To inspire young people to connect with society through working with horses, dogs, and other small animals." This is a place where academic standards and practical skills are not just taught but celebrated with the same enthusiasm as a winning racehorse. "We focus on practical skills as well as academic standards," says the school, reminding us that every student is a unique blend of potential, just waiting to be nurtured.

Practical Skills and Academic Standards

A School Unlike Any Other

The program is designed for young individuals who have strayed from the beaten path of mainstream education. It's a beacon of hope for those with learning difficulties, battling anxiety or depression, or dealing with the complexities of life such as bereavement or an abusive past. Here, the only prerequisites are a passion for learning and a desire to engage in a unique environment.

The Curriculum: Tailored for Success

Changing Lives School doesn't just adapt the National Curriculum; they reinvent it. With a strong focus on personal and social development, this curriculum is as inclusive as a group hug. It sets high expectations and provides opportunities for each student to develop essential life skills. Subjects like English, Maths, PSHE, and Science are taught, but with a twist that makes learning as engaging as a mystery novel​​.

Embracing Uniqueness: The Program at Changing Lives School

Imagine a school where every day is an adventure, not a routine. At Changing Lives, it's not just about textbooks and exams. It's about life lessons learned through the gentle nuzzle of a horse or the wagging tail of a dog. It's where education leaps off the pages and gallops into the real world.
