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

Downland is smaller than the average-sized special school for up to 69 boys aged 11 to 16. All students enter school with a statement of special educational needs due to behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. Many have associated disabilities including autism and Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Students are drawn from a wide area, including parts of other counties. Most students are from White British backgrounds and all speak English as their first language. The proportion of students supported through the pupil premium, which is additional government funding for students who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those looked after by the local authority, is well above average. The boarding provision which the school used to offer closed in February of this year. Students attend alternative provision at times during the week. This is at Wiltshire College or The Springfields Academy. The school has been led by an acting headteacher since January of this year.
