School Description

Fox Hollies is a school for students with severe or profound learning difficulties. A large and increasing minority also have autistic spectrum disorders, while many others have additional complex learning needs. The headteacher is a National Leader for Education and the school is a National Support School. A range of training and support is provided to other schools in the local authority area and more widely. There is a wide ethnic mix that reflects the composition of the local community and the number who speak English as an additional language is above average. The proportion of students who receive the pupil premium (additional government funding for students who are known to qualify for free school meals or who are in the care of the local authority) is well above that found nationally. Every pupil is in receipt of a statement of special educational needs. The school was designated as a specialist college for the performing arts and this remains a prominent feature of school life. It has been in receipt of the Artsmark Gold award continually since 2001 while in 2005 it gained Leading Edge specialism for its work in inclusion.
