Integrated approach to special education

Anthos is the ancient Greek word (ἄνθος) for flower, bloom, blossom. Anthos House is a unique school in Nigeria.

We believe in an integrated approach to education, care and therapy, while being committed to strong academic progress delivered as functional skills.

Initially, our student intake will be secondary, 10 - 18-year-olds; we will expand this provision over time.

A safe, secure and well-supported learning environment

Anthos House provides a safe, secure and well-supported learning environment. We support students to achieve positive outcomes in a well maintained, safe and therapeutic environment, specifically designed to meet their educational and emotional needs.

Our students receive a broad, balanced and holistic education and are grouped in classes according to age rather than ability. At Anthos House, we have a range of facilities including well-resourced classrooms, an art room, an ICT suite, an educational therapy room, a food technology room and outdoor play areas.

Throughout the working week, the students will attend their classroom sessions with their teachers and support workers.

They will also experience sessions led by speech and language therapists, behaviour therapists, occupational therapists and qualified dance teachers depending on the individual needs of the child.

The facilities will continue to grow and develop over time to further meet the needs of the students.
