Silverwood School is a new maintained co-educational special school for pupils aged 4 to 19 years. We formed in September of 2020 with campuses in Chippenham, Trowbridge and Rowde.

Wiltshire are investing in a £33 million new build at one site to create state of the art centre for SEND education, health, and care and training focusing predominantly on pupils with complex SEND. Our inclusive system of excellence will seek to re-balance and improve educational provision for all children and young people with SEND, including those currently in mainstream schools and resource bases or in other alternative provision. Offering local and community-based SEND provision across a wide area from its new inception. It will also deliver high quality training and expertise to a wide range of SEND settings across the county.
