Special Education Needs

Pinewood is a mixed secondary special school for up to 155 pupils with MLD. Many pupils also represent a range of other needs and difficulties including speech and language, physical and/or sensory impairments, and clinical conditions which may affect their learning. Though the majority of pupils live within the East Herts area. The school admits pupils from every town and area of the County plus neighbouring Authorities (e.g. Enfield and Essex). The school is located in a very attractive area of extensive woodland within walking distance of Ware Town. We share the site with Presdales, a Girls Secondary School and Middleton, a Primary MLD School.
