About Strathmore School

Strathmore is a happy, thriving, oversubscribed and growing special school for children and young people aged 4 -19 with severe and complex learning difficulties including those with an additional diagnosis of autism and/or physical/sensory disabilities. We are committed to supporting all of our pupils to achieve and enjoy and be stimulated and challenged to fulfil their potential.

We are a forward thinking school committed to investigating and providing pupils with the most relevant and innovative learning opportunities and resources available. We have recently moved into our new purpose built facilities that we share with inclusive minded mainstream schools.

Our ‘small schools’ and small class sizes ensure that all pupils benefit from a highly consistent and supportive approach from all our staff, including therapists, and are given every opportunity to thrive and develop as individuals. Our constant focus is always on what will make the biggest impact for the individual pupil.
