Information about the school

Alt Bridge Secondary Support Centre is larger than average for a community special school. It provides for students with an increasingly complex range of special educational needs and/or disabilities, including moderate and specific learning difficulties and speech, language and communication difficulties. The school established a base seven years ago to meet the specific needs of higher-achieving students with autistic spectrum conditions.



How effective is the provision?

Teachers and support assistants know the students very well and have high expectations for what they can achieve.Teachers use lessons and pastoral sessions very successfully to remind students how well they are doing and what they need to do to improve further. Students contribute to the evaluation of their own work.There is a 'can-do' ethos in the school with constant encouragement of students to raise their self-esteem and to enable them to enjoy success.
