Information about this school
The school is part of the Percy Hedley Foundation and draws the majority of pupils from local authorities across the north of England. The school has two sites: one for the Early Years Foundation Stage, primary age and Key Stage 3 pupils; the other for Key Stage 4 and post 16 provision. It accesses a sports academy within the foundation.

The residential provision at Leybourne House has 18 beds for full-time or short break care. At the time of the inspection 12 pupils were accessing this provision.

The large majority of pupils have either speech and language and complex communication difficulties or physical difficulties. Many have additional visual, hearing or emotional needs.

There are 37 full and part-time therapists for speech and language, physiotherapy and occupational therapy. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs. The vast majority of pupils are boys of White British origin.

The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is below the national average.

The number of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is lower than the national averages.
