School Description

Glenwood is a mixed day special school. It caters for 120 pupils all who have been identified as having severe or profound and multiple learning difficulties. Approximately 50% of the pupils have autistic spectrum disorder and this proportion is increasing steadily. A few pupils have degenerative conditions. Pupils’ needs are often complex including many that have communication difficulties, physical or medical needs. All pupils have a statement of their special educational needs, except for a few of the youngest children who are currently going through the process of having an Education and Health Care Plan drawn up. Approximately 22% of pupils are eligible for the pupil premium (a government grant for disadvantaged children). This is in line with the national average. The sixth form students benefit from a range of learning opportunities in the wider community including working with John Laing Training Limited, a construction company where they participate in a number of work-related activities. Most pupils are White British. There are twice as many boys as girls which is typical for schools of this type.
