Bowden House School is maintained by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and provides specialist, residential education and care for boys between the ages of 9-16 with the addition of a Post 16 Unit for Years 12 & 13 where students can attend local colleges and extend their academic profile and/or follow a vocational curriculum to access further training or employment. The school also admits boys on a daily basis if they live within an easy travelling distance. Bowden House is situated between Brighton and Eastbourne and moved to its current site in May 2012 enjoying ‘State of the Art’ teaching resources and separate accommodation facilities. The school was built under the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme and fully complies with the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 and Part M of the Buildings Regulations 2010 with regards to physical access and facilities in all areas of the school.
All classrooms have been designed to ensure that all students have access to high quality, contemporary resources and equipment.
On-site activities provide varied leisure interests for our students to relax and have fun. Activities in the local community provide opportunities for them to participate in new leisure pursuits; follow their personal interests and enrich their social lives.
During the year, the school presents a range of events to ‘showcase’ the students’ abilities. Parents/carers and other visitors are warmly welcomed.
The school has an on-site Speech and Language Therapist who works directly with students and provides advice and guidance to staff. The on-site Therapeutic Counsellor meets students who can refer themselves for this support.
