School Description

Kingsdown Secondary School is an independent special school which provides education for students aged between 11 and 16 years who have behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. It is registered for up to 40 boys and girls. Currently 17 students attend, all of whom are boys, and all have a statement of special educational needs. Students have usually failed to thrive in their previous educational settings and almost all have levels of numeracy and literacy below that expected for their age. They have their places funded by their local authorities and generally attend from South London boroughs. The school is located in a residential area on the outskirts of Croydon in Surrey. It opened in 2001 and is in the ownership of a limited company, McRae Residential Care Services. The school aims to ‘nurture young people’s confidence in order that they may embark upon a new journey through learning’. It was last inspected by Ofsted in June 2009.
