Key Stage 1 & Key Stage 2

Primary special needs education

We cater for students from the age of five to eleven in our primary classes and provide three main streams of primary education. These are the Key Stage One and Key Stage Two Integrated Group which cater for our more complex students, and the Primary to Secondary Transition Group which caters for those students working to a successful transition into our Secondary provision.
