Vranch House is an Independent Day School for children with physical difficulties. The school is approved by the Department for Education. It is owned and maintained by the Devon & Exeter Spastics Society.
Vranch House School provides unique learning opportunities for children aged 2 to 12 with significant physical difficulties. Educational and clinical work is integrated in a curriculum developed specifically to meet the challenges these children face both now and in the future.
The physical difficulties might arise from a number of clinical causes such as spina bifida and head injuries but the majority result from cerebral palsy.
The main components of the integrated programme of work are teaching, physiotherapy and speech and language therapy. Regular paediatric clinics are held at Vranch House for children attending the school and centre. Interested parents are welcome to visit by contacting the Headteacher.
An indoor heated swimming pool is shared with Honeylands Childrens' Centre.
Children from mainstream schools attend swimming and physiotherapy sessions at Vranch House Centre most afternoons.
An Inclusion Support Service based at the school provides liaison and support for children on shared placements with mainstream schools.
