Residential Care


Residential Care

Being away from home is a big challenge and we strive to create an environment that reassures children and students by working closely with their families and carers prior to them staying. They are confident that their needs will be met in a family-oriented setting, where everyone is valued.

Residential students and their families have the added reassurance of 24 hour nursing support during the week and overnight at weekends.

The dedicated, caring and highly-trained staff at St. Rose’s and St Martin’s work closely together, endeavouring to provide new activities and opportunities to inspire the children and students to achieve their optimum level of participation and independence. They are encouraged to take responsibility and be involved in their care programmes at whatever level is appropriate to them. We provide person-centred programmes where individual needs guide the specialist support the students receive.

Students are able to use the excellent onsite facilities during their residential stays. These include the hydrotherapy pool, sensory garden; use of a full sized trampoline for rebound therapy to name but a few. The grounds are extensive and wheelchair accessible, allowing students to enjoy the outdoors whenever they want to.

Bedrooms are large and students are encouraged to personalise them. Specialist equipment is provided according to individual needs.

As St. Rose’s  and St Martin’s is so close to numerous local community facilities and Stroud town centre, the students are able to access them on a regular basis. Should students choose to travel further afield, we have 2 wheelchair-accessible mini buses and 3 wheelchair-accessible cars that are available at all times.

We offer a variety of flexible residential options to suit you and your child and are happy to discuss them with you at any time, get in contact for more information.



St Rose’s aims to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that offers stimulating opportunities appropriate to the needs of our students.




A team of experienced therapists are employed directly by the school to work alongside education and care staff. Collaborative therapy and sharing that knowledge is integral to the work of our school.



When a child or young person is happy, they have the best chance of progressing and achieving their goals. Ensuring that your child’s emotional needs are met is as important as their physical requirements.
