What the school says...
Our school, St Piers, is based on a beautiful 60 acre campus in Lingfield, rural Surrey. We have a day and residential special school providing the highest quality educational services for students aged five to 19 years of age, including a sixth form.
The students are at the centre of everything we do. Our dedicated, enthusiastic and experienced staff provide first class support. The education, health, care and therapy teams work in partnership and we pride ourselves on having strong relationships in place with parents, carers and funders. This tried and tested approach ensures every St Piers student reaches their optimum level of achievement. The school is an incredible place for children with neurological conditions and behavioural difficulties to thrive, learn new skills, change in confidence and make new friends.
Staff excel in teaching pupils with a range of conditions including: ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), acquired brain injury, autistic spectrum disorder behavioural difficulties, epilepsy, moderate learning difficulties, on-weight bearing, profound and multiple learning difficulties, severe learning difficulties.
All students follow a curriculum that includes: communication, language and literacy, mathematics and cognition, ICT (information and communication technology) and design technology, PSHE (personal, social and health education) citizenship.
Classes are small; five or six per class. This allows us to be proactive and meet the individual needs of each student. St Piers pupils often have highly specialist medical and health needs. Our multi-disciplinary teams work together to minimise the impact of health conditions on their schooling. Our goal is for the pupils to attain their maximum potential, which we achieve by encouraging and nurturing their talents. ...Read more
