This is primary special needs school that caters for children aged 2-11 with a wide range of special needs however Autism is the most predominant, including both low and high functioning. They have a wide range of facilities and resources to meet the needs of their pupils. Learning is highly differentiated and children are grouped by ability rather than age with no more that 8 pupils per class.

The children all have an EHCP for Special Educational Needs (SEN).
