Providing support for ordinary living
Seashell is dedicated to providing a creative, happy, and safe environment for children and young people with complex learning difficulties and additional communication needs.
We offer a holistic approach with Seashell Royal School Manchester, Royal College Manchester, and our 17 home-from-home care houses, to provide a safe, supported environment. Our special needs residential schools provide the best facilities and equipment, including sports, health, and well–being. Additionally, our facilities for special needs students provide many different ways for our students to explore their creativity, artistic pursuits and physicality.
Seashell focuses on the extended family that cares for each one of our students and residents. We understand the difference that can be made to all those connected lives, that is why we strive to include the whole family and the wider community in the life experience of our children and young people.
