Type of school: Academy Trust
All Hounslow schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of students with Special Educational Needs and are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all students, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of students with Special or Additional Educational Needs being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible, where families want this to happen.

Specialist provision on site
This school hosts two specialist Centres for students with autism and physical disabilities which are funded by the London Borough of Hounslow. Places at the Centres are commissioned by the Local Authority for students who meet the criteria for admissions.
All students placed in the Centres must have a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education, Health and Care Plan which names the Centre as the required provision. The school cannot consider requests for placements in the Centre that have not been agreed by the London Borough of Hounslow SEN Team.
