Springwood Campus

Springwood Campus

Springwood Campus is the second largest campus based in West Howe. Springwood is an all through Autism Specific Provision catering for Early Years students through to Post 16 students.  

Springwood’s environment is intentionally low arousal. Ground-floor classes have a courtyard garden, and first-floor classes have a small room adjacent to the main classroom to support quiet learning. Springwood has a soft-play room, sensory room, sensory emersion room, food tech room, music room, hall, MUGA (multi-use games area), and playground.   

Springwood classes have a small number of students and a high staff ratio to provide the support our students need.

School Uniform

Linwood school uniform is only available for online ordering at PMG Schoolwear.

Please note that their stores in New Milton and Poole do not hold stock but you can use their free Click & Collect service to save on postage costs (you will need to make an appointment to collect).

It is recommended to buy online before 12th August – after that date uniform may not be with you in time for the new term.

Please label items of school uniform with your child’s name using name tags or a permanent marker pen. This will enable us to return items that have been found around the school.

Please contact your child’s class teacher or Phase Leader if you have any concerns about school uniform.
