Cerebral Palsy School

Treloar’s understand the special educational, care and health needs of young people with cerebral palsy. Typically in any year 70% of our students have cerebral palsy of differing complexity. Many of our students use a wheelchair and many have communication difficulties due to their disability. Our expert professional team work with students, parents, carers and local authorities to establish whether we are the best place to meet the educational, health and care needs of the young person. We will always be honest and if we believe that the young person could be in a mainstream school or would benefit more from an alternative special school we will tell you and will also work to support these alternative providers.

Treloar School and College provide education for children and young people with cerebral palsy between the ages of 2 and 25 from throughout the country. We offer both residential and non-residential options and a wide range of on-site health and care services to reduce the amount of time that students with cerebral palsy spend away from education attending appointments.

We cater for all levels of complexity and ability. Student classes range from sensory and interactive, for those with very high special educational needs, through to College vocational courses delivered at the nearly mainstream Alton College, with the support of the expert Treloar’s staff. We focus from the start on the possible outcomes for the young person and will work with them, the family and the local authority teams to achieve the best possible results for the young person, whether that be more independence, attending university or gaining employment, to name a few of the possible destinations after education.

At Treloar’s we believe that cerebral palsy and other complex disabilities should not be a barrier to receiving an education and gaining the most out of life.
