The Roost

Have you been to The Roost?

There is a Roost at each of our sites, at Bonham Road the ex-caretaker's house has been refurbished as a fabulous facility that will help families engage more with their children whilst at St. George's we have a new room specifically set aside as The Roost.

The Roost will support pupils with additional needs who need to access a wide range of services. Local organisations will partner with the school to use the house for the benefit of the school community, ensuring that the pupils of Valence will continue to have the best provision possible.
