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.
