School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This is a non-maintained special school and is part of the David Lewis organisation.

The school provision caters currently for 8 students aged between 16 and 19 years. Most of the students live on site.

All students have neurological conditions with associated epilepsy. Their learning needs are complex and include profound and multiple learning difficulties, severe learning difficulties and autistic spectrum disorders. They all have statements of special educational needs.

Most students are boys and are of White British heritage.

The proportion of disadvantaged students supported through the pupil premium is above the national average. The pupil premium is additional funding for those students who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority. The school has received funding for only one student from the relevant local authority. Students are admitted from a wide geographical area that includes 28 local authorities in England and Wales. The main local authority involved with the school is Cheshire East.

The school has received accreditation from the Autistic Society for the quality of its provision.

There is an informal partnership between David Lewis and Piper Hill Special School in Manchester. Piper Hill is an outstanding school.

The school uses no alternative provision.

There have been a number of changes made to the management structure of the school, so that it is now aligned to the David Lewis College in terms of governance and funding arrangements.
