School Description

The school was opened in September 2013 in a new building, as a result of an amalgamation of two special schools. This new school provides for pupils with complex needs, primarily for those with a diagnosis of autism and those with severe learning difficulties. All the pupils have a statement of special educational needs. There are many more boys than girls. A much larger than average proportion of pupils qualify for additional government funding (pupil premium) because they are entitled to free school meals or are children who are looked after. A much larger than average proportion of pupils are from minority ethnic heritages, reflecting the make-up of the borough. A larger than average proportion speak English as an additional language. All Year 7 pupils benefit from additional government funding. There is no early entry to examinations. The headteacher was previously the headteacher of Horizon School, which was one of the schools amalgamated with the new school.
