What The Good Schools Guide says

Situated a good distance from the main road amid 25 acres of greenery, and home to a pond visited by ducks and geese, this school has no shortage of space and indeed great facilities and teachers, excelling in almost every subject. Coupled with its caring and supportive culture, it’s no wonder the school is seen to be responsible for soaring house prices in the area.

Special Education Needs

The Coopers’ Company and Coborn School has relatively few students with Special Educational Needs, however, students with specific learning difficulties are well catered for within the requirements of the SEN Code of Practice. Some in class support can be provided if appropriate, and Individual Education Plans support the progress of students with learning difficulties. The students are closely monitored by the SENCO and other pastoral staff. We currently employ three Learning Support Assistants who provide in class support, as well as a Special Needs Assistant, and we offer an after school support club to ensure that homework is recorded properly and to give SEN students the chance to make a start on homework. We do not currently have an in school referral unit. All students are expected to undertake the full curriculum at Coopers Coborn, with differentiation and support from staff to support inclusion. 09-09
