Pupils enjoy their time at school and build strong relationships with staff. Staff are patient, understanding and supportive. Management and staff together create a safe, happy and inclusive environment which any supply member of staff would need to contribute to as well. The school has a great location in south Manchester, close to other amenities and transport links and has strong links to other schools and outside agencies.

The school caters for young people aged 3-16. The children all have an EHCP for Special Needs. Pupils have a wide range of needs including PMLD, SLD, Complex Needs, Sensory Needs, Autism and many others.
