School Description

The school provides for pupils whose learning difficulties range from severe to profound and multiple. A number of pupils have physical disabilities and a growing proportion have complex medical conditions. All have a statement of special educational needs. Almost all pupils come to school from the London Borough of Sutton, with a very few travelling in each day from surrounding districts. Nearly half of all pupils on roll 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. Just over one third of pupils come from backgrounds which are other than White British. A slightly lower proportion do not have English as their first language at home. There is a comprehensive range of clubs and activities available to pupils at lunchtime and after school. Some of these are led by specialist coaches and instructors. The school links up with local further education colleges and employers to provide communitybased learning activities for its sixth form students. There are also well-established links with other schools in the area and overseas.
