Chalk Hill is an Alternative Provision (AP) Academy for boys with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs. Residential places are provided for boys whose family and/or personal circumstances impact adversely upon educational engagement and opportunities. This includes, but is not exclusive to, those whose needs may be described as Social, Emational and Mental Health and Communication and Interaction and other conditions. Some degree of additional special need will be considered under advisement. The school takes boys from KS2 (age 8) through to KS3 (age 14) across Suffolk who have been excluded or are at risk of permanent exclusion from mainstream settings. Currently there are 30 places with 12 places for boarders and 18 places for day pupils.

All students are referred to us through Suffolk County Council and are taught in small classes, usually no more than 6 children with 2 members of staff.

Chalk Hill has boarding facilities for 12 boarders from Monday to Friday afternoon.

Students at the school do NOT  have to have a full  Education, Health and Care Plan (EHC), but many do.

We have a detailed and regularly updated SEND information report.
