Our whole residential provision is registered as a children's home. We have several large family-style houses set in the Sheiling grounds. Some houses are for younger children aged up to 16 and others are for 16 to 19 year olds. The College residential provision is separate from the other properties.


We have up to 50 places across the houses. The houses act as extended family-style groups, with the house group sharing meals, including a freshly cooked midday meal. Everyone is expected to contribute what they can to the running of the house, e.g. setting tables, taking out the compost or washing up after meals.


Like in the other parts of The Sheiling Ringwood, we place a clear emphasis on healthy rhythms and routines and on creating a friendly environment. We believe that ensuring the children and young people feel safe and comfortable in their environment, in their routines and in their relationships is the vital foundation for enabling learning and confidence to develop. This in turn leads to maximising independence.
