The school is a residential school with a Quaker Society of Friends foundation. It provides for special educational needs for male pupils with conditions such as the autism spectrum disorders of Asperger syndrome, ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), ADD (attention deficit disorder) and BESD (behavioural, emotional and social disorders). The school affords alternative education for pupils to that at mainstream schools. It provides courses towards GCSE examinations, and prepares pupils for further education and career placements. A separate 'After Care' charity supports pupils' post-school life.
