School Description

Since its last inspection, the school has expanded to include key stage 2 pupils. The school is one of two special schools that form the Manchester Federation of EBSD Schools. The school is located across three sites. Key stages 2 and 3 pupils are taught at Southern Cross School in Chorlton. Key stage 4 pupils are taught at either the Castlefield Campus or the Wythenshawe Campus. Key stage 4 pupils at the Castlefield Campus are taught alongside pupils from the other school in the federation. The work of the school is overseen by the federation’s governing body. Each site is led by a head of centre. The federation is led by an executive headteacher based at the Castlefield Campus. The school does not use any alternative provision. All pupils have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities and have education, health and care plans.
