Penarth Group School is an independent school catering for boys and girls aged 8-16.
The school forms part of the Penarth Group. Which is part of Care Haven UK Ltd.
Penarth Group includes residential care at either – Penarth House or Kamina House.

The school is registered with the Department for Education (DfE) to meet the needs of up to 15 pupils.
We provide education for students with complex educational needs, communication difficulties and challenging behaviour. All of our young people have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP).
The school accepts students with Social, Emotional, Mental Health and Behavioural needs, though they may face additional challenges and diagnoses including ADHD, Asperger’s, SpLD, MLD, OCD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, Foetal Alcohol Syndrome or a variety of other conditions.
Additionally, many of our students have serious social issues and very difficult home lives resulting in complex emotional difficulties.
All students attending Penarth Group School have individual needs that have proved too complex to be addressed within a mainstream setting.
The school provides effective support and a suitably differentiated curriculum, enabling them to progress and succeed to the best of their ability.
The aims and values of the school emphasise a commitment to provide a high quality provision for all our pupils.
The school’s long-term aim is to nurture confident individuals and confident citizens, who can lead safe and happy lives and who will make a positive contribution to society
