Our Vision

We believe that with a great education, every neurodivergent pupil can thrive and make their way in the world.

Our Mission

Every day we improve the lives of our pupils, their families, and local communities through a relentless focus on wellbeing and learning.

Our Promise

We are kind to ourselves and each other...We work together... and we make things happen.

Our Promise sits alongside our Vision and Mission. It describes the sort of people we are and our commitment to how we treat each other, work together, and behave.

It represents what’s truly important to us as individuals and as a team. It is easily translatable into behaviours we all practice and experience every day. It's the golden thread that runs through every leader, team and individual.

How do we achieve and deliver the 'Incredible'?

We are dedicated to providing exceptional educational opportunities and care for neurodivergent young people. Our focus is on ensuring that each of our pupils has access to learning that is tailored to their needs, enabling them to overcome specific barriers, achieve personal goals, and celebrate their successes. At the heart of everything we do is the individual pupil.

We are committed to staying up to date with the latest developments in SEN education, and we continuously strive to innovate our approach and empower our teams to achieve the best possible outcomes for our pupils. Our multi-disciplinary teams bring together an array of specialisms and expertise, collaborating to find a route to success for every pupil, whatever that may mean for them.

Our efforts are paying off - in the last academic year alone, we educated over 3,000 neurodivergent pupils, and 98% of our schools were given an Ofsted rating of good or outstanding. Even more importantly, 100% of our leavers go on to employment, education, or training - a significantly higher rate than the national average.

We firmly believe that our young people possess great potential, and we are committed to helping them fulfil it.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or would like to apply for this rewarding position.
