Welcome from the Headteacher – Samantha Lea
Welcome to Crookhey Hall, I joined the school over ten years ago and never left. I have worked in this SEMH setting in a variety of roles ranging from class teacher, Head of Nurture, SENCo , Assistant Head Teacher, Deputy Head Teacher and most recently as Headteacher.
‘I believe that every child has the ability to achieve – despite their starting point and how much school they might have missed prior to placement at Crookhey Hall. We aim to ‘plug the gaps’ and give our children the confidence and skills needed to reach their potential through specialist teaching and individually tailored intervention programmes.
Crookhey Hall is a ‘clean slate’ where young people can make a fresh start and leave any preconceptions about education at the front door. Crookhey Hall is unique and we celebrate that as a staff team and with the young people in school. Crookhey is a place for success and for positive experiences that in turn lead to positive adult outcomes’.
