School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The school provides for 52 pupils, all boys, between 11 and 16 years who have statements of special educational needs because of their behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. Many pupils have additional and complex needs such as attention hyperactivity disorder, autistic spectrum disorders, moderate learning difficulties, and medical or health-related needs.

The vast majority of pupils are of White British heritage.

The proportion of pupils who are supported through the pupil premium is well above average. The pupil premium is additional funding that the school receives for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority.

The school makes use of up to ten alternative providers, the main ones being: Cornerstone Vocational Training; Shaftesbury Youth Club; Utopia Project and The Vocational College, so that some pupils can complete work-based courses and vocational training. The school provides training in the management of pupil behaviour to local Wirral and other north west schools.

The school has received a number of awards recently, including Investors in People Gold Award, one Gold and two Pearson Silver Teaching Awards.

The school has a close working relationship with Weatherhead High School (which is designated as a teaching school), as partners working in the Weatherhead Teaching School Alliance.
