Cambian Wisbech School in an independent, DfE-registered, co-educational day school, providing specialist education for up to 40 students, aged 7-17 years.


The School has a well established reputation for providing good quality personalised education for students with social and emotional difficulties along with associated challenging behaviours. Many of our students have had negative experiences in previous school settings and have consequently failed to achieve or integrate successfully. At Cambian Wisbech School, we aim to re-engage learners with their education and to replace feelings of failure and frustration with a sense of belonging and feelings of success. The success of our School is based on the commitment of staff creating a safe and nurturing environment that allows all pupils to develop understanding and respect for themselves and others.


Our effectiveness is dependent on good relationships with parents and carers. We value your opinions and welcome your involvement in all aspects of school life. 


We pride ourselves on providing a warm, caring and nurturing environment where students are prepared to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. Our school staff forms part of an effective multi-disciplinary team that aims to equip learners with the requisite knowledge and skills necessary to meet life's increasingly difficult challenges.
