What the school says...

We are a co-educational specialist school for children aged 5-11 years which opened in January 2011. We cater for pupils with specialist needs (eg. specific learning difficulties) and for children who require extra nurturing and support.

We received a very successful OFSTED Inspection in May 2011. See the quotes page of our website to find out more.

We value every child as an individual and cater for personal learning styles in our teaching. Our curriculum is a creative, multi sensory, cross curricular programme which includes teaching social, communication and language needs including English as an Additional Language (EAL), emotional intelligence, motor skills and citizenship skills as well as delivering every area of the National Curriculum including swimming and sport.

We have recently expanded to two classes (Lower Junior and Upper Junior) and we are now welcoming admissions from pupils in Year 1 and 2.

Classes are small (average of eight) and many lessons make use of our beautiful grounds. We work closely with parents to encourage pupils to develop their strengths whilst working towards challenging but achievable targets in their areas of need.

What the parents say...

My Son has recently joined Birtley House and even in such a short time the progress he is making is great. I am really pleased with the school and he has settled in very well.

My son has been at Birtley House for 8 months now and in that time his maths age has increased by 2 years!!!!! His reading is above average and his writing (which is his weaker subject) has also improved greatly. The 1:1 attention he gets has been such a benefit. Not only that but his confidence has grown too. Anyone thinking of moving their child should take a look at Birtley House, it's the best decision we ever made.
