Percy Hedley School specialises in working with two distinct groups of children who have cerebral palsy and/or speech, language and communication difficulties and other complex difficulties including ASD, dyspraxia, dyslexia, and ADHD. We set out to make a difference to the learning, wellbeing, and future life chances of children. Teachers, Therapists and Learning Support Assistants work together in trans-disciplinary teams to meet the individual needs of every pupil. Together, we believe we can unlock each child’s potential and support achievement for all.
