I believe Penn Fields School is a unique school: we specialise in meeting the individual learning needs of a wide range of young people with a Statement of Special Educational Need. The school provides education for up to 160 young people between 5 and 19 years who have moderate, severe or complex educational needs. At Penn Fields School we aim to cater for all our pupil’s individual needs and to provide a high quality learning environment which raises the aspirations and achievements of everyone who learns with us.


The school has a positive, safe and caring ethos with strong shared values. Visitors and parents frequently comment on the friendly and supportive atmosphere of the school. We are a vibrant, inclusive school where every student's achievement is valued but we have high expectations and recognise and value the hard work pupils put into their work.


Every single one of our pupils are well supported by a team of dedicated and well qualified staff who work tirelessly to offer them a broad and balanced curriculum that meets their individual needs. We set challenging targets, both academic and personal, which are monitored each term and linked closely to an individual’s Statement of Special Educational Need.

I am extremely proud of our staff, our young people and everyone who make Penn Fields School such a pleasant and enjoyable learning environment.


We invite prospective parents/carers to contact us for an informal visit.
