What the school says...
Royal School Manchester is a day and residential, non-maintained special school (NMSS), offering high-quality provision for students from 2-19 years.
Students attending Royal School have profound and complex learning and communication difficulties. A significant number of our students have either single or multiple sensory impairments, as well as other individual needs associated with complex communication impairments e.g. Autism Spectrum Conditions.
In order to meet the diverse needs of our learners we have adopted a total communication approach incorporating sign, speech, symbols (including PECS), objects of reference, photographs and real objects as appropriate to support the learning of the individual. Communication underpins everything we do.
Recently judged Outstanding (October 2012) for the second consecutive time, Royal School Manchester is regarded, as a national centre of excellence for young people with profound and complex low incidence special educational needs.
Therapy is embedded throughout the school day with school based therapists working in collaboration with teachers and support assistants to ensure a holistic approach to meeting needs. ...Read more

Special Education Needs
The Royal School for the Deaf and Communication Disorders (RSDCD) is a mixed day and residential co-educational, non maintained special school with a college department. RSDCD caters for those students who have severe and complex learning difficulties, combined with significant communication difficulties, which include very limited or no oral language. We are currently divided into three departments which have different curriculum and communication emphases: deaf/severe learning difficulties support; autism support; and multi sensory support. The delivery of the school and extended curriculum is supported by a multi disciplinary team: Educational Psychologist, SALTs, OT, Physiotherapists, Audiologist, medical staff, link worker and Musician in Residence. RSDCD have very good recent Ofsted, Ofsted ALI and CSCI inspection reports and the Post 16 department was commended 'outstanding' in 2005 HMCI report.
