Overcoming Barriers – Achieving Success.


Teaseldown School was the first school to be established by Exceptional Ideas Ltd. Originally opened in 2009 and situated in a 4 bedroom house, we catered for 8 students. By early 2015 however, we relocated to the Sugar Loaves in Sible Hedingham, where we currently reside. The Sugar Loves has been repurposed and refurbished, allowing us to improve our teaching methods via integration with technology. Furthermore, as a result of a larger premises, we have been able to expand our student body to 12, helping to reduce the number of families that are waiting for a place for their children. Teaseldown @ The Sugar Loaves is also registered as the company’s exam centre, enabling all of our students across the three schools to take public examinations while still within a therapeutic setting.


Primrose Hill school is a small renovated chapel that used to be the home to Yoga Vita. We have a maximum intake of seven students. We are located close to the center of Chelmsford, a five minute walk away from Admiral's Park and within easy access to the library, shops, art galleries and with regular transport links to London with all of its cultural infrastructure. The school has a small homely feeling and we use the space in a creative and energetic way to deliver dynamic experiential education.


Brookview is the newest of Exceptional Idea’s schools. Situated in Wethersfield, a picturesque village in rural Essex, Brookview School provides a calm, and therapeutic environment for its students. The surrounding countryside provides an ideal setting for outdoor learning. Brookview school benefits from having access to local sports facilities such as the tennis and basketball courts and the school regularly engages with the local community. Established in a converted public house, Brookview school provides a colourful, creative environment, which help’s its students to achieve their goals.


Located at NO.7 Park Farm in Black Notley, The Outreach Office, was set up in March 2017, to help us expand our home teaching service. A dedicated team there work to provide an education to those students for whom in school teaching is not suitable or in their early induction stages.
