Welcome to our special school for epilepsy, autism and complex needs


Welcome from the Director of Education

Welcome to St Elizabeth's School! We are special, unique and (we think) amazing! All young people are valued and are supported yet challenged to develop their knowledge, skills and learning both within the classroom and through our extensive programme of activities.

We aim to help our young people grow in confidence, as they acquire skills that support their independence, health and self esteem. We aim to empower our learners, build their self confidence, self care and independence.

St Elizabeth's School is celebrating significant success in the recent inspections of our provision. St Elizabeth's School received a two day inspection in September 2014, where we were judged to be Good across all areas of the inspection. Key strengths have been shown in good management and leadership, good quality of teaching, strong assessment procedures and positive feedback on planning, achievement and progress.

The school also received a Welfare Inspection in March 2014. The residential provision was judged as Outstanding across all areas of the inspection. Key strengths were highlighted to be the integration of the School with its residential provision, development of confidence and independence skills, prioritisation of safeguarding and pupil welfare and effective and efficient management. This result is the 6th consecutive welfare inspection to be judged Outstanding.

We have much to celebrate and would like to invite you to visit us to experience the culture and ethos of our school for yourself.
