About Us

"The wellbeing and achievement of the pupils is at the heart of the school's work and every child has an opportunity to succeed" Ofsted November 2014


"This is a school that celebrates the worth and individuality of every member of the school community" Ofsted November 2014


Glenwood School is a Community Special School maintained by the Local Authority. It caters for up to 190 learners between three and nineteen years of age. It is a co-educational school for learners with severe or
profound and multiple learning difficulties. Approximately 60% have a diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorder and approximately 30% have significant physical and/or sensory impairments.
Glenwood School offers a flexible approach to learning and life opportunities, respecting and valuing the individuality of every learner.
We believe in the need for all involved with Glenwood School being fully aware of the interdependency of individual contributions in providing a service for learners that is fully integrated at the point of delivery.
We aim to provide all learners with the tools and core competencies that they really need to enjoy a meaningful adult life.
