The Height's Lane site is a secondary special school provision.  We provide education for pupils aged 11 to 16 with EHC plans.


We cater for a wide range of Special Educational Needs, including but not exclusive to; ASC, ADHD, attachment disorder, anxiety, speech language and communication needs and specific learning needs such as dyslexia.


We provide a nurturing environment which focuses on developing positive relationships with each individual pupil.  Pupils are taught in small classes with a high staff to pupil ratio.

Pupils are grouped according to age, ability and need.  Each pupil has access to a key person who can support them academically, socially and emotionally.


All pupils study a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum.  Timetables include the following subjects: English, Maths, Science, PSHE, IT, Humanities, Art, PE and Cooking.

Pupils also participate in the school's Social and Communication curriculum which aims to develop social skills and communication skills.


Pupils complete activities both on and off-site in small groups.

We have high expectations of each individual pupil whatever their prior attainment.  Pupils in Key Stage 4 undertake a range of examinations and accreditations from entry level to GCSE, this includes vocational courses which are delivered both on site and by external providers.
