What the school says...

Hamstead Hall is distinctive in many ways. It has a significantly wide range of abilities with a Special Needs Rescource Base alongside students winning places at Oxford and Cambridge. We are an ethnically rich and varied school community of both pupils and staff. Our students come to school to learn.

Special Education Needs

We are a 11-18 school with a Special Needs Resource Base which has 40 places for students. These places are allocated by SENAS. The Base is a support base and all students are fully integrated into the whole school with suitable support. Students mainly have MLD, but from 2006 2 places per year group will be allocated to students with Speech and Language Difficulties. Ofsted in 2003 commented that our strengths were our inclusivity, Excellent pastoral support and Quality of provision. We were awarded a 1 for inclusion and a 2 overall.
