The Beeches is located in a rural location with limited transport links but only 3 miles from Gainsborough.
Despite our rural area, the bus station offers connectivity to Doncaster, Sheffield, Retford, Brigg, Grimsby, Cleethorpes and Lincoln. It is a charming area where we can enjoy the quietness without the sound of heavy traffic.

Outcomes for children
The staff team is motivated to improve the lives of the children and young people, we want to see our children and young people, thrive, grow and develop into happy young adults. Accordingly we try out new ideas and approaches to give the children and young people we work with the best chance of success. This is achieved by supporting young people to develop supportive and responsive relationships so they can build a foundation for resilience across childhood and into adulthood. Our ambition is to ensure that young people are at the heart of the decision making process, that education, access to general and mental health services are sourced. We believe is fundamental that children and young people are protected from serious harm and that their needs are met.
We have a rewards system which is based on positive reinforcement as an aid to support our young people in terms of behaviour management where positive behaviour is rewarded which encourages young people to change behaviour patterns, providing our young people with an emotionally secure environment.
We have a wide range of activities around us shopping centers, bowling, parks and lakes, cinemas, golf, wild life parks and football fields. We have other sports clubs around the area including football, rugby and tennis.
