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

Leaders and staff have created a safe and happy place for pupils. Some pupils attend for only a short period of time. Others stay at the school for longer. Regardless of how long they are at the school, they receive a warm welcome. This helps pupils to settle in quickly and start to learn. Pupils know their teachers expect them to behave well. Pupils are respectful to teachers and to visitors. Leaders and teachers want pupils to achieve well. Pupils usually listen carefully and try hard with their work. They know that staff will help them if they do not understand anything. Pupils are proud of their achievements. Pupils we spoke with told us about the difference the school has made for them. They typically commented: ‘I hated maths – I didn’t get it. But I came here and I got it.’ Pupils have opportunities to take part in sporting activities away from the school site. Some learn to swim with greater confidence. Others play golf or go hiking in the Lake District. These activities help them to develop healthy lifestyles. Leaders and teachers keep pupils safe from bullying. Pupils know that it is not acceptable. They trust their teachers to resolve any difficulties that occur.
