The school is an outstanding day community special school for pupils aged 11-19 years, who experience severe learning difficulties, autism and profound learning needs, including those with MDVI. It is a richly diverse, cohesive community where all students are celebrated and where staff work together as a team to ensure that every child reaches their potential in happy and safe surroundings.
The school itself is a mixed needs site with children and young people aged between 11 and 19 all educated on the campus. The needs of the students range from severe autism trough to PMLD classes like this one. Facilities are fantastic as the site has been heavily invested in over the last few years. Parking is also plentiful for those that prefer to drive.
