Headteachers Welcome
Welcome to our website. Glenwood is a community special school situated in Benfleet, South Essex. We cater for children and young people who have severe or profound and multiple learning difficulties, aged 3 to 19yrs.


This covers a wide range of needs including learners with autistic spectrum condition and those with complex physical and sensory impairments. 

We hope the website gives you a small insight into life at Glenwood but we know it cannot substitute for a visit. If you would like to know more about us please contact the school.

See below for some of the wonderful things our learners have been achieving.

The Purple Enterprise team delivered handmade cakes alongside a personalised gift tag as a random act of kindness to people who help them

Our staff and learners loved a recent cake sale. All money raised is going to Havens Hospice

Thank you to 'Disability Inclusion Society' for having some learners from Green Corridor visit

Red 1 learners enjoyed making Teddy bear faces for Goldilocks and the 3 bears
