A Vibrant Learning Community

Headteacher's Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to our school.

Heatherwood School is a vibrant learning community and part of Nexus Multi Academy Trust.   It is a special day school for pupils aged 3–19 years with severe, profound and/or multiple learning difficulties. 

We have an additional post 16 provision for pupils with moderate learning needs, and a small cohort are educated at The Bridge, our offsite provision.

We live by our mission statement and seek to develop a better tomorrow for all learners, through a holistic blend of quality first teaching experiences; celebrating pupils’ strengths along a highly personalised learning journey.
