School Description

Marshfields is a large community special school designated by the local authority for students aged 11 to 19 years with moderate and complex learning difficulties. Marshfields draws from the entire City of Peterborough and beyond to include learners from neighbouring counties of Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire. All students have a statement of special educational needs. There is a wide mix of learning needs, including moderate and severe learning difficulties, autism, and behavioural, social and emotional difficulties. The vast majority of students are of White British heritage and very few are from minority ethnic groups. The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding allocated by the government for certain groups of students, in this case those who are eligible for free school meals and who are looked after by the local authority) is well above the national average. The school works with City College in Peterborough to extend the range of learning opportunities for post-16 students.
