School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The Sutton School and Specialist College educates students with moderate learning difficulties and a few have severe learning difficulties. Some students also have additional needs, such as autism or speech and language difficulties.

The school is now part of a trust with a neighbouring special school, Halesbury. There are two governing bodies which report to the trust board. The headteacher of this school is also the executive headteacher of the partner trust school.

The proportion of students entitled to the pupil premium is above average. The pupil premium provides additional funding for students looked after by the local authority or entitled to free school meals.

More than three quarters of the students are boys. All students have a statement of educational need and most pupils are White British.

The local further education college uses some of the school's facilities for post-16 provision for students with additional needs. This is does not include the school's students and the college's provision does not form part of this inspection.

Students from the partner trust school are educated on this site to enable them to follow accredited studies.

Some students access work-related learning activities, such as health and beauty, at the partner trust school.

A few students study for examinations at the local mainstream secondary school, Holly Hall Academy.
