What we do and how we do it:

At Camphill Wakefield, we are dedicated to creating a thriving and inclusive community that empowers individuals with special educational needs and disabilities to lead fulfilling lives. Our mission is simple yet profound: to empower and inspire young people by providing a practical and purposeful, vocational and creative environment. We foster a sense of belonging, dignity, and purpose for all students and work to develop each student's agency. We believe that every individual deserves the opportunity to grow, learn, and be embraced for their abilities, regardless of their challenges.

Our community is a hub of activity, where students participate in a wide range of workshops and meaningful work opportunities. From art and crafts to gardening and animal care, our students engage in activities that ignite their creativity, build practical skills, and instil a sense of accomplishment. We believe in the transformative power of purposeful work, providing students with meaningful roles and responsibilities that contribute to the functioning of our community.


Our team of dedicated educators, therapists, and support staff are committed to providing individualised attention and support to each student. We believe that building strong relationships between students and staff is crucial to creating a safe, welcoming, and empowering learning environment.

All this cumulates in quality education, personal development, and individual support that is:

Staff always champion choice and the wishes of the Young Person.

Keen to learn and understand
We naturally choose to evaluate and reflect on performance in a supportive, mentoring environment.

We work across a number of settings. We collaborate with other professionals to get the best result for the Young Person.

Safeguarding and Health & Safety is at the heart of everything that we do.
