Our students have moderate to severe learning difficulties and other associated needs. Many of our students have moderate autistic needs. Some of our students have visual and hearing impairments.

In response to our students needs, we offer a full and diverse curriculum with specialist support. The progress that our students make is judged as outstanding as a result of the teaching and support available to them and the progress that they make academicly, socially and emotionally.
