School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
All pupils have a statement of special educational needs. The greatest proportion of pupils has severe, profound and multiple learning difficulties, many with associated sensory impairments. A minority of students also have autism spectrum conditions.

A majority of pupils have complex communication, medical and health needs; some of these may be life-limiting.

Pupils may be admitted to the school at other than the usual starting times and particularly to join the sixth form from other schools.

About a quarter of pupils are known to be eligible for additional funding through the pupil premium which is higher than the national average.

Almost half of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds and for many of these, English is an additional language.

Castle Hill staff provide outreach support to schools and other settings in the area on request.

The school holds a number of awards including specialist status in communication and interaction, quality standards in careers and primary science and the Disport PMLD Kite Mark.

The school has applied to become a teaching school through the National College of School Leadership.
