Special Education Needs
We pride ourselves on the quality of education we provide for our pupils and the ongoing opportunities we create to encourage and increase their independence. The school is currently part of a major re-organisation of the Special Schools in Southampton. In September 2007 we moved to a newly adapted building. In addition to the eight bright and airy classrooms, all with computers and interactive whiteboards, the school has a range of facilities including: a hydro therapy pool, art room, ICT area, food technology room, multi sensory room, soft play room and outdoor play and teaching areas. We are situated on the same site as Thornhill Primary school allowing shared events and activities to take place. The school has eight classes, mostly of mixed age groups with eight pupils on average in each class. We provide Outreach support for pupils with special needs in mainstream schools; a team of two teachers and three members of the support staff work with pupils and staff in mainstream schools on a regular basis. To be a successful school, enabling pupils to make good progress and grow as individuals, it is vital to work collaboratively with parents. We value our close links with parents and look forward to working in partnership with you and providing a rewarding and challenging education for your child. We are committed to providing a range of exciting learning opportunities relevant to every child’s needs in an environment in which every child is respected and valued.

Interpreting catchment maps
The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.
Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.
For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained
If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.
Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.
Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.
*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.
The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
