Special Education Needs
Southlands school makes provision for young people with moderate learning difficulties and other complexities of need. It has specialist provision for a small number who have additional social, emotional and behavioural difficulties and provides supported access to local mainstream schools' GCSE curriculum for students with subject strengths.
