Parayhouse School is committed to ensuring that each and every student reaches his or her full potential.

We deliver our mission in three essential ways...

we provide a safe and nurturing environment where students feel secure and are confident and eager to learn.

we create a highly specialised and individualised curriculum with speech and language at its heart, empowering students to learn.

we establish close working relationships between parents, carers, students and staff to support learning and behaviour at home as well as at school.

Welcome to Parayhouse School

We are delighted to welcome you to our school website.  Parayhouse is a specialist provision for young people aged 8-16 years with speech, language and communication difficulties.  We are proud to offer a curriculum and environment which is individualised to meet the needs of each of our students to allow them to achieve their full potential.


Communication is at the heart of what we do and we are proud of our integrated collaborative approach where Speech and Language Therapy support is embedded in the whole school experience.


We believe that our school has a uniquely warm, inclusive, family feel and ensuring that our children feel safe, supported and valued is of the utmost importance to our staff. We strive every day to provide our students with a wide range of positive experiences and to guide them towards a successful and fulfilling future.


We hope you enjoy founding out more about our school here on the website.  If you have any further questions please do contact us or if would like to experience our school in person we would be happy to welcome you for a visit.
