School Description

This is a special school for students with a broad range of special educational needs including those who experience severe or profound and multiple learning difficulties. All students have speech, language and communication difficulties. Additional needs include autistic spectrum disorder, sensory impairment, physical disabilities and behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. Most students join the school at the beginning of Year 7. All students have a statement of special educational needs. The majority of students are of White British heritage and the proportion from minority ethnic groups is below average. The proportion who speaks English as an additional language is average. About a quarter of students are eligible for the pupil premium, which is additional government funding provided for students who are known to be entitled to free school meals or who are looked after by the local authority. This proportion is higher than the national average. Students in the sixth form attend off-site work placements with local employers. The school is a specialist sports college. The current headteacher was appointed in September 2011, having previously been deputy headteacher and then partner headteacher at the school for a number of years.
