The Lighthouse School, Margate, is a small non-maintained specialist school created to provide an inclusive and therapeutic learning environment for students who are unable to access mainstream education and where primary need is support for SEMH.

We at the Lighthouse School aim to bridge the gap created by time lost in education by offering personalised learning programme for our students, who have frequently experienced disrupted education leading to disengagement, challenging behaviour and/or exclusions from mainstream environment.

The Lighthouse School also aims to encourage our students to re-engage in educational opportunities which meet their individual needs by means of one to one support, small group tuition or other interventions.

The Lighthouse School further promotes enjoyment in learning through its own alternative and flexible curriculum which leads to opportunities to gain nationally accredited awards and qualifications.
