We host an integrated Specialist Resource Base, which is also the subject of a recent Estyn case study for its exceptionally strong provision. (

You will find us to be a supportive, collaborative group of colleagues, who work to provide an exceptional standard of education for all of the students in our care. A full induction programme and meaningful professional learning is offered to all staff.
