About Us


Crowdys Hill School is an all through special school for pupils aged 5 – 19 with complex needs. We have 260 pupils on roll and are actively committed to the highest standards in safeguarding. This is a happy school where our children and young people are given the opportunity to flourish and grow in a supportive and aspirational environment.

We aim to:

  • provide our students with an enriched and extended curriculum tailored to individual needs.
  • help our students develop positive feelings of self-worth and confidence.
  • enable them to make a successful transition to adulthood and to be active and responsible citizens
  • help children understand the importance of truth and fairness, so that they grow up committed to equal opportunities for all.
  • enable children to have respect for themselves and positive self-esteem, and to be able to live and work co-operatively with others.

We are all committed to maintaining high expectations for each and every student.  Our strong emphasis on building independence ensures our students leave school not only with a range of qualifications but also the skills they will need to live a fulfilling life within their community.
