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 school caters for students with moderate learning difficulties. The vast majority have additional complex needs, including autism spectrum disorders, behaviour, emotional and social difficulties, specific learning difficulties, speech, language and communication difficulties or severe learning difficulties. Students come from across south Somerset, with a few from adjacent authorities. All students have a statement of special educational needs for their learning difficulties. Most students are White British. The proportion of students from minority ethnic backgrounds is low, and only a very few speak English as an additional language. There are more than twice as many boys as girls. The proportion of students supported by the pupil premium (additional funding for students known to be eligible for free school meals and those looked after by the local authority) is well above average. The school opened a new sixth form in 2013, catering for up to 18 students. These students undertake extended learning opportunities at places away from the school, such as at Yeovil College and Rylands Farm. There are currently no children in the Early Years Foundation Stage or in Key Stage 1. The school is part of the Yeovil Foundation Partnership with another special school.
