The Review Score of 4.1 (maximum of 10) for Wilsic Hall College is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 4.1 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Wilsic Hall College in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 0 out of 5 from 0 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.
a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Care Home / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Care Home receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.
The Average Rating of 4.083 for Wilsic Hall College is calculated as follows: ( (1 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.083
b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Care Home to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'
The 5 points available are broken down as follows:
4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.
1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.
If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.
The 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Wilsic Hall College is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
0 = 0
Target of 1.6 positive Reviews (8 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 1.6 Target = 0

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Gabie H (Mother of Resident) on Monday 24 August 2015. Relates to August 2015.
My son has been Wilsic Hall for a year and is progressing well. I have to say that communication with the school is generally very good, the staff are friendly and helpful and knowledge of my son is very good. Although he still has incidents from time to time, on the whole I feel he has made good progress since he first arrived in the summer of 2014.
The staff seem to 'get him', which isn't easy - he is a very complex young person and at times can be extremely challenging. I have witnessed this first hand during a recent visit where a staff member managed a short period of heightened excitement with competency - she was firm, yet caring too.
There are plenty of activities to help keep him occupied - computers, sports, reading, music, soft play in addition to outdoor pursuits as well.
He will be going through transition into adult services within the next year or so and I hope the level of support and guidance will remain in place to successfully deliver positive outcomes for him in the years to come.
