Specialist Education

Covid-19 Update: Our schools and colleges are operating aligned to the latest Government Covid-19 guidance. As with the wider population, we are working alongside the ongoing challenges of Covid-19 and we will keep parents and carers fully informed of any local infection spikes that may impact our schools.


We are grateful for the continued support from families and carers at this time through what continues to be an extraordinary challenging time for everyone.
