Welcome to our website which aims to give you an introduction to our school, as well as provide information for parents, pupils and the wider community.

Please feel free to contact the school directly with any specific queries you may have or if you would like to arrange a visit. 

We are always happy to dedicate time to meet with prospective families who want to know more about our provision or are considering a place in a special school for their son or daughter.

Grove Park is a maintained community Special School for children from 4-19 who have a wide range of learning needs and disabilities, including moderate, complex, severe, and profound or multiple issues. Many of our pupils have an additional diagnosis of autistic spectrum condition.

 

Our primary phase is located in extensive grounds with purpose built play facilities and our secondary and 6th form are co-located with Beacon Academy secondary and 6th form in modern and fully accessible provision. All phases are located within a short distance of each other.

 

Pupils and families are well supported at each of the transition points from primary to secondary and if chosen, our 6th form. Staff work closely together across all the phases to ensure that when a young person moves to the next point in their school career, they are given all the support they need.

We are very proud of the work we do and the achievements of all our pupils and our core beliefs underpin all we try to do in our school

We believe -

  • Our pupils should learn and interact in a caring, happy, safe and secure environment
  • We provide a curriculum and environment which facilitates and develops pupils’ independence
  • That all believe in the importance of friendships and encourage good, trusting relationships throughout the school and in the community
  • As a school, we provide the guidance and support needed to build confidence, self-esteem and independence
