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.

Heaton School is a special school catering for students aged 11-19 with complex learning difficulties. All students have statements of special educational needs. The main categories of need are severe learning difficulties, profound and multiple learning difficulties and autistic spectrum disorder. However, many students have additional needs, particularly communication difficulties and those of a medical nature. The proportion of students known to be eligible for free school meals is high (31%). Nearly all students are of White British heritage. Six students are in the care of the local authority. The school’s sixth form, the provision for 16-19 year-olds, is called the Extended Education Department. A proportion of students joins this department each year from other special schools and specially resourced units in mainstream secondary schools to continue their education. The school has Performing Arts Specialist College status. It provides extended services by way of after-school clubs, a youth club and a holiday club for students. There are facilities for multi-agency work, particularly with health professionals and to support parents and carers. The school has been completely refurbished since the last inspection.
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.
