As a Special School, we believe what we offer to our children, community and staff is unique and enables us to be forward thinking in terms of curriculum, provision and budget planning. As a specialist school for children with a wide range of SEN needs we have a strong moral compass in everything we do and this has seen us develop and grow our number on roll (currently 123) and our specialisms which are predominant within Autism, Communication Needs and Social, Emotional and Mental Health.

Our staff are our greatest asset and we invest in both our teaching and support staff CPD which has placed us in a good position with regards to current educational challenges.

• A leadership team who welcome fresh ideas and a sense of teamwork.
