The Red Hill Trust
Registered Charity no. 307891
The Red Hill Trust was founded by Otto Shaw in 1948 to manage a school for children with emotional and behavioural difficulties. It was established at Charlton Court in East Sutton, Maidstone, taking its name from earlier premises in Chislehurst, Kent. For nearly 50 years it provided boarding education for about 50 boys with emotional and behavioural problems who had been referred by local authorities across the South-East. It eventually closed in 1992 as the government instituted the policy of integration into mainstream schools.

For the next ten years it was leased to Kent County Council who used it as a day centre for a Pupil Referral Unit, catering for much the same type of children that had previously boarded there. This lease has now ended and the property has been sold. The Trustees are now in a position to make grants to organisations which have similar objectives to those of the original Trust.
