About Alfriston School
Alfriston is an outstanding Special School with Sports College status for girls aged 11-19 with moderate learning difficulties and speech and language and communication difficulties. We currently have 150 girls on roll. We became an Academy on 1st March 2012. The school has been delivering high quality education since 1950. All the pupils have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) and are taught in small groups. Our staff are specialist subject teachers and are experienced in working with a range of special needs and abilities.
Pupils attend Alfriston from all over Buckinghamshire and some neighbouring counties. We also have weekly boarding provision for 20 pupils.
We consider the staff team as our most valuable resource. Training and development is a high priority in the school. There is also personal support given to staff to manage the diverse and challenging work needed to support pupils with significant special needs.
At present there are 60 staff employed at the school working in the teaching, support, residential and administrative teams. We are proud of the excellent standard of education provided at Alfriston.
