School for Inspiring Talents is an award-winning independent therapeutic day school based in Devon for young people aged 5-16 who have experienced trauma.


Our therapeutic approach to education supports a growing number of children whose complex social, emotional, and mental health needs means they are unable to thrive in mainstream education.


We are passionate about providing the appropriate support, care, nurture, and educational strategies to our students to truly flourish.


School for Inspiring Talents was the first school in the UK to be awarded the Trauma and Mental Health Informed Schools Award. In 2021 we were announced Pastoral School of the Year finalists by the National Association of Pastoral Care in Education.
