Nugent House Residential

We are the North West’s flagship home for young people aged 7-19 with emotional behaviour and mental health needs providing specialist therapeutic residential support.

At Nugent House Residential we pride ourselves on providing a holistic approach to residential and education for Children and Young People by preparing them for all the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.

Through this supportive environment, children can begin to develop self-respect and self-confidence.


To provide a high quality integrated education, care and therapeutic environment where young people with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties are enabled to achieve their full potential.


  • To create a secure, orderly and caring community in which pupils are able to achieve both academically and personally, whilst developing respect and concern for others.
  • To provide entitlement to a National Curriculum which promotes the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, mental and physical development of its pupils.
  • To provide professional support which may promote a greater sense of emotional well-being and an understanding of the difficulties which pupils experience.
  • To promote appropriate peer and staff relationships encouraging the acquisition of appropriate social skills, mutual respect and trust.
