The Residence at Kings Mill School offers overnight short breaks for children and young people, currently on the Kings Mill School roll, from the age of 8 until their 18th birthday. 

We provide care for children and young people who have complex needs, communication, sensory and learning difficulties, physical difficulties and challenging behaviour. We are greatly experienced in working with children who require intensive support including enteral feeding.

A high level of care is provided by an experienced team who have supported children and young people with complex needs for many years.

Together with school, the placement services offered to children and young people include:

  • social care
  • thorough assessment and care and risk planning
  • wide range of fun and stimulating activities
  • focus on developing individual ability
  • increasing independent living skills
  • recognising and celebrating achievement


Our Ethos

The Residence offers a safe, fun and vibrant environment for a wide range of ability. A programme of activities and events are designed to stretch, excite and stimulate to all who use the Residence.

We work very closely with parents and teaching staff to establish effective working relationships.

We aim to equip children and young people with the skills to communicate their needs and express preferences.

Build relationships based on mutual respect.

Promote and value difference.

Prepare young people for adulthood and develop independent living skills where appropriate.


The Residence has provided safe and quality care for over 50 years. It caters for up to 12 children and young people per night and offers a range of spacious areas which offer the chance to relax and have fun. The environment is bright and stimulating and has access to several outdoor play areas in addition to the range of activities within the school such as the hydro-therapy pool and sports hall.
