School Description

The school, which holds specialists sports college status, provides for students who have moderate learning difficulties. Approximately 40% of students have an autistic spectrum condition. All students have a statement of special educational needs. Almost all students come from the surrounding districts in the county of Hampshire, with a very few travelling to the school from other local authorities. The school plays an active role in the local consortium alongside mainstream primary and secondary schools. The school moved to its current spacious site, which formerly housed a secondary school, approximately 18 months ago. A number of community recreation and leisure facilities are to be found on the campus. Students are able to participate in a range of after-school clubs on most evenings, with school staff providing transport home for those who require it. More than one quarter of all students on roll are entitled to receive the pupil premium, which provides additional support for those in the care of the local authority, those with families in the services or those who are known to be entitled to free school meals. This is higher than the national average. The overwhelming majority of students are from White British backgrounds and for almost everyone, English is the first language spoken at home. The school does not use any alternative provision for its students.
