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.

This is a happy school with a great ethos. The school’s mission statement sums up this ethos well: ‘Every voice is heard. Every voice is celebrated.’ Pupils with a range of special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are welcomed with open arms by caring staff. Pupils like coming to school. They say they enjoy being with their friends and feel safe. The school places great emphasis on pupils’ personal development. Many pupils arrive with limited language and complex social and emotional needs. Staff nurture pupils’ confidence and promote their independence well. Pupils and staff enjoy their Pilates classes and stress-busting art activities. Pupils enjoy excellent relationships with staff. The school has a comprehensive bullying policy and keeps a close eye on any problems. If issues do arise, staff address these quickly and provide support. However, the quality of education is not yet good. The knowledge and skills that leaders intend for pupils to learn have not been thought through enough in some subjects. Several subject areas lack a clear rationale and plan for exactly what will be taught and when it will be taught. There is scope for the teaching of early reading to develop further.

2015 GCSE RESULTSImportant information for parents
Due to number of reforms to GSCE reporting introduced by the government in 2014, such as the exclusion of iGCSE examination results, the official school performance data may not accurately report a school’s full results. For more information, please see About and refer to the section, ‘Why does a school show 0% on its GSCE data dial? In many affected cases, the Average Point Score will also display LOW SCORE as points for iGCSEs and resits are not included.
Schools can upload their full GCSE results by registering for a School Noticeboard. All school results data will be verified.
