About us:

Our School is an Ofsted-rated “Outstanding” specialist school for children aged 3 - 19 years of age with speech, language and communication difficulties.

* Continued professional development and training.
* The opportunity to obtain a City & Guilds accredited training course in Behaviour Support Management while working here. We also deliver the Elklan course which is an accredited speech and language training programme aimed at professionals working in schools.
* An opportunity to pursue a career in Teaching or Therapy where applicable.
