Choosing a school for a child with a physical disability is a huge decision. It is crucial to find an environment where they receive real care, the right support, specialist attention, as well as an excellent education.
We are a non-maintained special school for 5 to 16-year-old + students with physical disabilities. However, some students with particular learning/emotional difficulties may stay with us until the age of 19. We have room for over 70 residential and up to 40 day places. We welcome young people from all over the UK and overseas.
As one of the largest and most respected schools of our kind in the UK, we harness our expertise to challenge and nurture our students to help them lead the fullest and most fulfilling life possible. Here your child will be safe and happy, with all aspects of their wellbeing catered for.
"Teachers, care staff and therapists work together effectively and use school and community resources well to promote understanding and achievement.” OFSTED report, 2012
Our key strength lies in our holistic, multi-disciplinary approach, which encompasses education, residential and pastoral care, therapy, medical support and independence training.
Currently 70% of our students have cerebral palsy. However, we welcome young people with a wide range of physical conditions, including those with associated sensory or cognitive difficulties. Around 90% of our students are wheelchair users and 15% have little or no natural speech. We also cater for students with degenerative or life-limiting conditions.
All our teachers have experience in special education as well as in their own areas of specialisation. They work in collaboration with colleagues from a wide range of disciplines including care and medical staff, therapists and psychologists. This highly skilled and dedicated team, supported by state-of-the-art equipment to aid students with their mobility, communication and education, provide your child with the bespoke care and unique educational package that will help them learn and develop.
