This school caters for children from the age of 7-16 severe and profound complex learning difficulties.

The school itself is a popular SEN school which encourages all children to develop into independent, respectful, and confident individuals. All classes are divided based on the child’s learning needs, therefore receive the apocopate teaching approach. You may be required to work across all classes, so you must be able to adapt to each individual child’s needs.
