Springwater occupies a site on the High Street in Starbeck. Security of the site and safety of the students is assured through the use of suitable security grade fencing and all external doors are controlled by a centrally managed Paxton door access system.

Some of our Specialist facilities include: a fully functioning sensory and interaction rooms along with a seperate sensory room for our EYFS students.

A 25 sqm pool with changing and hoisting facilities enabling access for all students. 

A  trampoline enables all students to experience the freedom this piece of equipment brings.

We also operate a fully air-conditioned, minibus with a tail lift to facilitate student educational visits.

We are in the process of developing plans for further development of the site which are due to be in place by late 2018.
