Meet our team

Education, health, care, and therapy specialists

The community and sense of belief created by the students and the people who work at St Piers is the heart of what makes it such a special place, transforming the lives of everyone

Our experienced and highly qualified team of education, health, care, and therapy teams work in partnership with our students, and their families to provide support and guidance every step of the way, to help develop relevant and meaningful skills that are important in everyday life.

They work tirelessly, round the clock to ensure children are safe, happy, healthy individuals who wake up each morning with a smile on their faces. And the experience they bring to the job means that every child here, even those with the most severe learning difficulties, has the opportunity to flourish.
