School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Aigburth High School is a special school providing education for students with moderate and severe learning difficulties. Many students have an autistic spectrum condition and other additional needs such as communication difficulties, sensory impairments and medical conditions. A large majority of students have behavioural, emotional and social difficulties.

All of the students have a statement of special educational needs.

The large majority of students are in Key Stages 3 and 4. There are 11 pupils in Year 6 and 25 students in the sixth form. Students are admitted to the school at any point in their education and at different times during the school year. The proportion of disadvantaged students supported through the pupil premium is well above 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. A classroom is set aside and staffed for students who need help with their behaviour. The additional resource centre offers short periods of time out of lessons during the school day. The three alternative providers used by the school are: the Fairbridge Programme, a Prince's Trust Centre, providing short courses for life skills, and preparation for leaving school; Myerscough College which offers land-based courses; and, occasionally, Alder Hey Hospital School when students with a medical condition are being treated.
