Information about the school

Both Belle Vue School and Cornfields are smaller than average-sized special schools which operate a nurture-based ethos and are registered to admit 60 and 50 pupils respectfully. The schools serves pupils aged 7-19 who have a range of primary diagnosis including autism, social, emotional and mental health difficulties and cognition and learning difficulties.

Our pupils are wonderfully individual, each one with strengths and areas for improvement. Our schools are calm, quiet and orderly settings where pupils can be supported to develop academically and emotionally.

Ofsted inspected both of the schools separately and judged them both to be Outstanding in all areas.

Our vision is that every child should go to an inspiring and life changing school, have the best teaching and benefit from all services working in partnership with each other to ensure their future life chances are improved.

At the core of our schools is a drive to improve life chances of children. We will go above and beyond, set high expectations and improve outcomes by working together with others.
