Our specialist school is for blind and partially sighted children with significant learning difficulties and disabilities aged two to 14.

Based in Northwood, Middlesex, we offer a safe and supportive environment that helps children achieve their full potential.

  • Focus – Children and young people at the core of all we do.
  • Collaboration – Together we are stronger.
  • Quality – Excellence through innovation, creativity and continuous improvement.
  • Integrity – Transparency and fairness in all we do.
