School Description

High Peak School is one of 10 schools that form the Kedleston group of schools, the first of which was opened by the proprietor in 2006. High Peak School opened in October 2015 and is located in Higher Disley, Stockport. The school aims to ensure that: „Young people with social, emotional and mental health needs, autism spectrum disorder and other presentations can continue to develop skills and strategies that enable them to participate as independent, valued citizens, enjoying equal rights, opportunities and a good quality of life.‟ Inspection report: High Peak School, 29–31 January 2019 Page 10 of 13 The school is registered to provide for up to 60 pupils, aged seven to 18. At the time of the inspection, there were very few sixth-form learners. Those currently in the school work alongside their peers in key stage 4. At the start of the calendar year 2019, the school took in its first cohort of primary school pupils, who are educated in the school‟s nurture group. Currently, the school provides for a total of 32 pupils, most of whom are boys. All pupils have SEND. Almost all have an EHC plan. Those who do not have such plans are in the process of acquiring them. The school is increasingly using alternative provision to facilitate apprenticeships and work-based learning for pupils. Currently, a few pupils attend Stoke-on-Trent and Stockport colleges. The school uses a range of therapies to meet pupils‟ specific learning and development needs. Since the previous inspection, there have been several staffing changes, including the appointment of a new principal, deputy headteacher, special educational needs coordinator (also the assistant headteacher), nurture group leader and occupational therapist.
