Fountains High School (FHS) is a generic special school within the Esteem Multi Academy Trust situated in Stretton, Burton Upon Trent. Staffordshire County Council (SCC) currently commission 190 places for pupils aged 11-19, with Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans. Pupil numbers have grown substantially, from 126 places in 2011-12, due to high demand for places. Fountains High School is presently oversubscribed with over 200 pupils on roll including 55 Post-16 students based at Burton and South Derbyshire College (BSDC) campus. Approximately one third of our students have a primary need of Autistic Spectrum Disorder, a further third with moderate learning difficulties and a quarter with severe learning difficulties. The remaining students have profound and multiple disabilities, and in addition to their learning difficulties, some have speech, language and communication needs, physical disabilities and visual impairments.

All of our students have unique needs, personalities and potentials and so it is only right that we provide our students with a personalised curriculum that allows them all the possibilities of progressing and success.

Most students follow either ‘ACCESS to the World’ Curriculum or ‘SHINE in the World’ Curriculum that prepares them for the next stage of their life. These curricula form the basis of a student’s timetable and allow all students to always achieve their potential.
