Our school is a friendly and dynamic place to work. We have approximately 50 pupils between the ages of 11-18, all of whom have an EHC plan for hearing impairment, and 32 enthusiastic, dedicated staff. We are situated in Welwyn Garden City and have excellent transport links to Central London/major airports and the M25 and A1.

There is a real sense of community within our school. Our pupils are from a rich variety of cultures. They display excellent attitudes to school and have a clear love of learning. Behaviour is outstanding; pupils behave very well, both in lessons and around the school. They show good manners and are polite and welcoming. Parents appreciate our inclusive and welcoming climate and say that our school is ‘like a family’. We have strong links with Monk’s Walk School which gives the opportunity for integration for our pupils.

Our school staff is very supportive. School management is strong and all staff are committed to the same shared ambition to raise standards and improve the life chances of all pupils at our school. The senior management team – the headteacher, deputy headteacher, school business manager and Partnership & Liaison Co-ordinator – is highly effective.

Data is thoroughly used to inform self-evaluation, and development plans are thorough, rigorous and analysed fully. Consequently, overall standards are outstanding and we have been rated as such in our last three consecutive Ofsted inspections.

Our school offers excellent teaching resources both in and out of the classroom. We regularly invest in up to date technology such as iPads, iMacs and Apple Mac computers. Our grounds include a multi-use games area and sensory garden.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you wish to visit. We would very much look forward to showing you our school.
