About the School
Red Moor School is a specialist provision located in Lanlivery near Bodmin in mid Cornwall. The school provides full-time specialist co-education for up to 36 children and young people aged 5 to 16 who have social, emotional, mental health and communication difficulties or associated behaviours that challenge.
Unable to achieve in a mainstream environment, our aim is to help pupils excel by providing a structured, nurturing approach, with students accessing a broad, balanced, engaging and extraordinarily rich curriculum.
With its large building and extensive grounds, Red Moor School is an environment where children learn to thrive both in the classroom and outdoors, helping them to be the best.
Red Moor School opened in September 2020 and is therefore a small, but growing, staff team, including strong links with local therapists to enrich the curriculum further.
