Special Education Needs
Firwood School caters for pupils who have severe learning difficulties. Some of our therapies include, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech & language therapy. In September 2005, we became one of twelve special schools to be awarded the Trailblazer status. Firwood School has a very positive school ethos which was noted by Ofsted when they inspected the school in December 2003
