About Chiltern Wood School
We are a special school for just over 200 children and young adults, aged 3 to 19, with a broad
diversity of complex needs, including complex autism spectrum disorder (ASD), profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD), severe (SLD), and moderate learning difficulties (MLD). We support children with a range of needs including emotional behaviour, communication, medical, physical, sensory, and social needs.
We seek to develop our children as courageous, confident learners. We do this through an innovative approach to the curriculum, assessment, and partnerships with other schools, including via our Side by Side programme. We pride ourselves on the strong relationships that have been developed over the years between staff, pupils, parents, and the broader community.
Chiltern Wood is a maintained local authority school. In 2019 Ofsted judged the school as “good”.
