School Description

Prospect is a special school for boys aged from 11 to 16 years of age, all of whom have behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. Some have autistic spectrum disorders. Many have additional difficulties including attention deficit and hyperactive disorder, speech and language communication difficulties, pathological demand avoidance syndrome and learning difficulties. Increasing numbers have severe mental health issues and are too unwell to attend school full time or in a group. They may be educated at home, part time or on a one-to-one basis, depending on medical advice. All students have a statement of special educational needs. Pupils are taught in mixed-age classes within each key stage. Approximately three quarters of the students are known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional government funding for pupils who are eligible for free school meals, pupils from service families and those in care), which is much higher than the national average. Almost all are from White British backgrounds. Nearly one third of students join the school at different stages of their school career and at different times of the year; this is higher than the national average. Key Stage 4 students typically attend college placements part time at South Downs, Sparsholt and Highbury Colleges and PETA Skills Centre. They also attend courses part time at the local federation of secondary schools, including Park Community School, as well as other partner secondary schools such as Mill Chase Academy and Baycroft School. The school provides support and training for other teachers in local schools. It also has an outreach service, providing support and advice to schools that have pupils with behavioural, social and emotional difficulties including autistic spectrum disorders, and for troubled families.
