What makes us special?

Like our students, Breckenbrough is unique; offering a bespoke, special school approach in delivering the national curriculum.  We pride ourselves in being a ‘specialist’ school, providing a nurturing, supportive and low stress environment to help our students learn to manage their behaviours and make social and academic progress.

We aim to support our students to achieve two key goals during their time here:

  1. To be themselves, aspire and be successful.
  2. To develop strategies and coping mechanisms to move towards a level of self-actualisation in order to thrive in the neurotypical world.

"I discussed my son starting at Breckenbrough with my Mum over lunchtime and recent news about provision for children with additional needs especially ASD. We feel we are so lucky that he managed to get into Breckenbrough, and that local authority provision is so short-sighted. My son with the wonderful support and skills school has given him is likely to make a very positive contribution to society whereas without that support I dread to think where he might be or have ended up (in the end costing the LA/society more than the cost of quality provision). So, a big thank you for everything everyone has done in supporting and working with my son to this point. I know that OFSTEDs report was less than what you wanted, if only the inspectors could see the difference between an individual coming in and towards the end of their studies."
