This website is designed to keep the story of the brutal closure alive and to ensure that a full independent investigation takes place. For further information, please see ‘About Us’.

Treehouse Productions are currently producing a full-length documentary about the school but this is an independent initiative and not influenced or managed by the web team. Their Facebook page can be found at: wearethenewschool. Treehouse have released a number of video clips from the film which can be found on the FB page.

Our web team continues to investigate how and why a very safe, caring school was forced into closure and we will pursue this until a full investigation has been concluded.

We will not be commenting on the new provision operated by Moore House other than to congratulate them of gaining registration for a day service and to wish them every success for the future. There is no connection between our web team and Moore House. We are delighted that some former TNS staff have returned to work at Butterstone and that most day pupils have now resumed their education.

Once the investigation has been agreed, we will replace this website with a permanent archive to TNS to preserve the heritage of that wonderful school.

Until then, the fight continues. This is not just about the TNS staff and families who were so poorly treated by the authorities, but other independent services that need to be protected to ensure that what happened to TNS never happens again.
