Welcome to Linwood’s website, and thank you for visiting. I hope the website gives you an insight into our fantastic school but to really ‘experience the magic’ visiting is a must – please do call or e-mail to arrange a visit, we would be very pleased to show you around.
We believe that everyone should have the chance to thrive, and that Linwood can make this belief a reality. We believe that with the right environment and personalised support everyone can grow, learn and achieve.
For us every person matters and we understand that every moment counts. The organisation of our campuses, curriculum and assessment pathways and individual approaches ensure that learning is person-centred and has a real focus on upholding our school values of respect and harmony, inclusivity, support, responsibility, excellence, trust and positivity. We celebrate diversity and value the contribution that every child and young person makes.
Linwood School is a day special school which welcomes pupils from a wide geographical area, supporting a comprehensive range of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
Linwood School is made up of a number of campuses, information about each one can be found by clicking on the links below.
We have an exceptional staff team of teachers, teaching assistants and support staff. All staff are committed to providing the best possible support and opportunities for our children and young people. We are dedicated to providing a safe and secure learning environment where our students can grow and develop personally and academically. We understand the importance of strong relationships, motivating activities, joy and laughter in developing engagement and promoting learning.
We are highly aspirational for all of our students. We believe in working in partnership with parents, carers and the families of our pupils. We also work closely and collaboratively with a range of stakeholders to ensure our students have the best possible support and opportunities both in and out of school. We aim to ensure that our pupils are able to live fulfilled and happy lives with the skills they need for life both outside of school as well as into adulthood.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and learn more about our exceptional school.
