Blossom House began in 1989 when the first small language centred nursery group started. The group was run on the philosophy that children need ‘language to learn’ and ‘to learn language’ through exposure to a range of experiences that enable them to master other skills. The nursery was originally run from Joey Burgess's own home. Then in 1993 Blossom House extended its original brief and began to provide full time education for those children who continued to require a highly supportive, language based curriculum.
It was at this point that the school moved up the road into 8 The Drive, and started to meet the high demand for children who needed the unique environment that Blossom House provides. Blossom House continued to grow, and expanded into a full primary school. By 2005 it became obvious that there was a need for a secondary provision, and so when the building next door became available, the school moved again into larger, newly refurbished premises, with a sports hall and proper provision for art, design and technology and ICT. With the opening of our Post 16 provision in 2012 and a second site nearby, there are currently 160 pupils from the age of 3 to 19, and over 100 full and part time staff.
In September 2013, Blossom House expanded its provision further and opened a new school for children with speech, language and communication difficulties, initially in Paddington Green but from July 2015 in Christopher Place, between Euston and Kings Cross. Our provision now has pupils ranging from 3 to 11 years old (Nursery to Year 6).
