Whitefield Schools

School

Whitefield Schools is one of the largest providers of Special Education in Europe, with an international reputation for expertise, curriculum and training.

Ofsted judged Whitefield to be outstanding in all categories on its last three inspections. Whitefield became a teaching school in 2012.

On 1st April 2014, the school became part of the Whitefield Academy Trust, sponsoring Joseph Clarke School for children with visual impairment and complex needs.

There are three ‘schools’ within Whitefield, each providing outstanding teaching and learning for a specific group of pupils:

Margaret Brearley School

For pupils aged 3-19 years old with complex needs including learning difficulties, physical impairment and sensory impairment.

Peter Turner Primary School

For pupils aged 2-11 years old with autism or speech and communication difficulties.

Niels Chapman Secondary School

For pupils aged 11-19 years old with communication or interaction difficulties, or have hearing loss.

The school’s Outreach Service supports pupils with hearing impairment, autism, learning difficulties and complex needs in schools and early learning settings across the local authority.

The Whitefield Research and Development Centre leads initial teacher training within the Teaching School Alliance, runs courses in SEN up to Masters level and leads training for SENCOs and middle leaders in special schools.

Whitefield’s services are committed to remaining at the forefront of exemplary practice and to working to fulfil our vision:

Enjoyment, Achievement and Wellbeing for all.

Nursery with Free Early Education places is available at this school.
