The school supports students with a wide range of interrelated needs which include: speech, language and communication difficulties, selective mutism, higher functioning Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD), specific learning difficulties e.g. dyslexia or dyspraxia, psychological difficulties (depression, de-motivation, high anxiety, OCD etc.), medical needs, physical disabilities and vulnerable pupils who, for a range of reasons, have failed to thrive in a mainstream setting.
The academic and cognitive ability of pupils is usually several years below expected attainment for their age. Students are aged 11-16 years old and the school supports a maximum of 100 students, enabling teachers to provide individualised support to each pupil and successfully meet their needs. Year 7 entry students follow a primary based model and attainment usually ranges between B-Squared Levels 1 - 3. Year 8-11 classes follow a secondary model with pupils attending lessons with subject specialists. A range of qualifications is offered to pupils including GCSE, BTEC, ASDAN, Entry and National levels.
