At Parkwood Hall the children and young people are at the heart of everything we do. Our aim is to provide an outstanding and supportive learning environment which challenges students to achieve success.

At Parkwood Hall we pride ourselves on preparing students for life. The core learning values, which are at the centre of the curriculum, focus upon developing the pupil’s resilience and ability to make informed life choices.

Please feel free to contact us and make an appointment to come and visit, meet the students and staff and have a look around our fabulous building and grounds as this is the only way you will get a real feel for our school.

Our Offer

We offer a curriculum based on the needs of our students, which takes account of the requirements of the National Curriculum, and which is highly modified and adapted to meet their needs. Our own version of the “three Rs” states that learning should be Relevant, Realistic and Rewarding. As a consequence, we do not describe learning and teaching in terms of traditional school subjects.

If you require further information regarding our curriculum please contact the Deputy Principal on 01322 664441.

Holistic Approach

Our approach is to fully integrate therapies into the curriculum. We have chosen our therapists carefully and they are integral and valued members of our team. Our speech and language team is directly employed by the school and our Occupational Therapist, physio and art and play psychotherapists are directly commissioned by us to work with all those students who need their specialised input.
