A residential and extended day school for children with learning difficulties

Learners at LVS Hassocks grow and develop in peaceful and tranquil surroundings; this calm and safe environment allows them to continue learning life skills outside the classroom.

The weekly residential programme (Monday to Friday, 38 week placements) provides a high standard of care, giving students personal space within a functional and well equipped residential setting.

Staff work closely with students to develop the skills necessary to manage and maintain their individual personal care needs, ensuring they understand that
this is integral to their well-being. Each student has their own spacious and
comfortable room which they are encouraged to personalise and make their own. 

Learning to live independently

Fostering responsibility and self belief

As part of the Supported Independence Programme residential students are encouraged to live as independently as possible, with help and guidance
from residential staff whenever they need it.

All the students take some responsibility for the household tasks in their area, from cleaning their rooms and making their beds, to the older students who do all their own washing, and planning, buying, preparing and cooking their evening meals.

Care and Therapy

The high staff to pupil ratio at LVS Hassocks ensures your child will live and learn in a safe and comfortable environment.

The school has dedicated therapists as key key members of the team, there to support students on a daily basis.
