Placement Availability

"Cressey has achieved great results with our students, far better than other similar schools. If my own child needed this sort of school, I'd want it to be Cressey."

Head of SEN, nearby Local Authority, Feb 2017

"I've been to hell and back with my daughter, and I'm one of the strongest critics, having worked in teaching for many years. So my expectations are extremely high. But you all surpass them all, your staff team are all amazing. Credit where credit's due!"

Parent, July 2020
