Berry Street School, Noble Park Campus

About This Service

The Berry Street School is a specialist independent secondary (Years 7 - 12) school. We work from a model of Trauma-Informed Positive Education, which encompasses a structured vision of wellbeing in the school and therapeutic principles of teaching and learning. Due to traumatic experiences, our students often have significant gaps in academic achievement and have found it difficult to learn in a group setting, presenting with behavioural and social problems in school. The Berry Street School provides students with an individual education plan encompassing holistic support and offering intensive literacy, numeracy and personal development programs.
