About West Oaks SEN Specialist School and College

West Oaks SEN Specialist School and College is an all-age 2-19 specialist provision catering for pupils with profound and multiple learning difficulties, severe learning difficulties, communication difficulties and those with a diagnosis of autism. The school operates over two locations. The most established provision is based in Boston Spa, a village on the North East outskirts of Leeds. Our second site is based in the inner city Meanwood area of Leeds and is known as Woodhouse Learning. This site opened in September 2015.

Our sites, Boston Spa Learning and Woodhouse Learning both embrace the same vision for educating children and young people. West Oaks is proud of its inclusive and innovative practice where every child and young person’s needs are met with no compromise. A place where we strive, alongside parents and carers, to achieve the very best outcomes. The learning needs of all our pupils are at the core of our thinking, with a positive culture driving excellence for everyone within our school and college community.

Our learners reflect the wide ethnic and cultural diversity of the city of Leeds.

We design and teach a broad and balanced curriculum, highly differentiated to incorporate the needs, interests and motivations of our pupils. We celebrate individualism at all levels and have a reputation for being ever-responsive to the needs of our pupils. We believe that pupils learn best and enjoy learning when they are actively engaged in practical experiences and are confident in established routines
