About The Avenue Special School

The Avenue School Special Needs Academy is a day special school for boys and girls from the age of 2 – 19 with complex Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

Pupils at The Avenue School vary greatly in their needs, personalities and academic abilities. All will have at least a Severe Learning Difficulty and some will have Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD), Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), speech and language needs, physical needs and a combination of the above.

Pupils are grouped into mostly ability-based classes, though this can be on the basis of social ability or maturity rather than purely academic potential.

We are an extremely friendly place to work with excellent facilities and we strive to give our pupils the best possible educational experience.
