Ochil Tower School is an independent charity offering education, care and therapy services for children and young people with complex additional support needs on a residential and day basis. Our pupils come from a range of local authorities across Scotland. We have an ambitious development plan which includes an extension to our 52 week provision for all our children and young people and opening our 5th house on site, which follows on from the establishment of a Life Skills Centre for our senior pupils (18-21 years).
Ochil Tower School is part of the international Camphill Movement.
Our Vision - To be recognised as a centre of excellence where our children and young people can live, learn and work in an integrated community based on mutual respect and unfolding of individual potential.
Our Mission - To create a community where our children and young people feel a sense of belonging, support and personal growth; a place where there is an inclusive, lifelong learning culture with an integrated approach to health, education and care.
