The School was started in April 2000 by Scope and known as Suffolk School for Parents. However, Scope withdrew in 2002 and we then registered as a charity in our own right in March 2002. In October 2010 we merged with the Dame Vera Lynn Trust. In early 2015, after a difficult financial period, the Trust decided to close the school. Parents and staff felt so strongly for the need to continue providing such an essential service that they immediately launched a campaign to reopen the school under a new name and as a charity in its own right.
