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.

School Description

The school provides for students who live in the London Borough of Barnet who have severe or profound and multiple learning difficulties. A large proportion of students have an autistic spectrum condition. All have a statement of special educational needs. Over 40% of students are entitled to receive the pupil premium, which provides additional support for those in the care of the local authority, those with families in the services or those who are known to be entitled to free school meals. This is much higher than the national average. A much higher proportion of students than the national average come from backgrounds where English is not the first language spoken at home. Classes are organised into three learning zones with students allocated to a class according to the type of needs they have. Older students have the opportunity to attend some lessons at a further education college. The school has obtained recognition for its work over many years by gaining numerous national and local awards. The headteacher is a national leader in education. Holiday and after-school clubs provide students with further opportunities to participate in leisure and recreation activities.
