Special schools provide a unique and distinctive educational environment to meet the needs of the pupils in their community. Undertaking standard tests may not be appropriate and we do not show performance data for special schools.

School Description

The vast majority of students have complex special educational needs as a result of autistic spectrum conditions. In addition, a minority of students have moderate learning difficulties or social, emotional and behavioural difficulties and a few students have severe learning difficulties. The vast majority of students are boys. All students have a statement of special educational needs. The proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is average. The proportion of students from minority ethnic backgrounds is below average. The proportions of students eligible for pupil premium funding, which is extra money from the government to schools based on the numbers of pupils eligible for free school meals, pupils in the care of the local authority and those from families in the armed forces, is well above average. A new small off-site provision, called ‘the house’, and closer into the centre of Arnold, was commissioned in October 2012 for the sixth form and as a base to educate anxious students. The vast majority of students are in Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4 and the Sixth Form. There are currently no pupils in the Early Years Foundation Stage or in Key Stage 1.
