The Anchor School, which is a Christian based school, was established in 2008 when Frances Geber, a teacher in a special needs school, as well as running private remedial practice, realised that there was a group of children who fell between remedial and special needs education. Unfortunately, there were no facilities for these children who could achieve much more if given individual attention, but who were typically lost in the system.
After many meetings with a group of dedicated people, the school became a reality. The first two children attended school in a converted remedial class at Mrs Geber’s private practice.
A year later, the school had to relocate to larger premises in Mulbarton because it had grown faster than expected. An additional teacher was employed and the school registered as a Non-Profit Organisation.
