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.

This is a good school. Pupils who come to Hartwell have often struggled to cope in their previous setting. Many have not attended their previous school for some time. Once settled at Hartwell, pupils attend well. Pupils are generally calm around the school and behave well in lessons. Each pupil has their own key worker, whom they can speak to if they are worried about anything. Pupils feel safe and trust adults in the school to help them. Pupils enjoy the small classes and the wide range of subjects they study. Leaders check what pupils know and can do. Each pupil has a ‘pathways’ plan that describes their individual needs. Teachers use this information well. There are a lot of activities aimed at developing pupils’ confidence and social skills. These activities include rockclimbing, guitar lessons and yoga with llamas. Leaders recognise how important it is that pupils become independent readers. Primary-phase staff teach phonics well and this helps younger pupils develop as readers. However, staff who teach older pupils are not confident in teaching phonics. This means that older pupils who are still at the early stage of reading are not getting the help they need to become independent readers.
This school is independently managed and its admission criteria may be selective. There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK. Contact the school directly or visit their website for more information on Admissions Policy and Procedures.
2015 GCSE RESULTSImportant information for parents
Due to number of reforms to GSCE reporting introduced by the government in 2014, such as the exclusion of iGCSE examination results, the official school performance data may not accurately report a school’s full results. For more information, please see About and refer to the section, ‘Why does a school show 0% on its GSCE data dial? In many affected cases, the Average Point Score will also display LOW SCORE as points for iGCSEs and resits are not included.
Schools can upload their full GCSE results by registering for a School Noticeboard. All school results data will be verified.
