Cherry Tree Learning Centre


Cherry Tree Learning Centre is one of three Short Stay Schools in Dudley. The Centre supports children and young people living in Dudley who are unable to access their mainstream/special school due to ill health.  Pupils aged 5-16 years are referred to Cherry Tree for issues related to mental health, including self-harm, anxiety, school ‘phobias’, separation anxiety and depression, as well as a variety of physical medical conditions.

Cherry Tree Learning Centre is committed to working in partnership with schools, educational settings, parents and other professionals in order to ensure the educational/emotional needs of this vulnerable group of children and young people are appropriately met.

The Centre recognises that the best place for any pupil to be educated is in their mainstream or special school and we provide reintegration support, if required, when the child/young person is ready to return to their mainstream school.

Cherry Tree Learning Centre provides:
• Home teaching
• Hospital teaching (Russells Hall Hospital)
• Small group teaching in Cherry Tree Learning Centre

Referrals are made by schools, supported in writing by a medical professional.
