On Track Education Services is a not-for-profit company established in 2004. The company now operates eight independent special schools and additional support services around the country for young people with a range of diverse special educational needs. Students have their places funded by their local authorities or schools.

On Track Education Barnstaple opened in September 2015 and now occupies three sites in Barnstaple and Bideford. One is situated on the Whiddon Valley Industrial Estate and is designed for use by students who are on the autistic spectrum and students who live with high levels of anxiety or who need a low-stimulation, highly private environment. Our site on the Roundswell estate allows us to cater for students who are still developing their learning skills and who need high levels of flexibility, behavioural support and appropriate social interaction inputs. Our new site in Northam has given us space for experiential learning and the delivery of Thrive and therapy sessions. Our sites have easy access to the towns and to lots of businesses for work experience and social skill development opportunities.

We provide education for students with a range of SEND including self-esteem, mental health, ASC, genetic/hormonal conditions and emotional needs. The students, who all have EHCPs, each follow a personalised, individual curriculum ranging from Early Years provision to GCSE and Vocational Qualifications. It was described in the latest Ofsted report as a 'good environment in which to learn' having 'effective tracking of pupils' academic progress', where 'pupils are safe and feel safe' and attendance is 'particularly strong'. The school provides full-time education for the students on roll as well as outreach, intervention and tuition services for other schools in the area.
