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.

"Students’ individuality is celebrated. This helps to build relationships between staff and students based on respect and trust. As a result, students enjoy spending time with staff and sharing hobbies such as the school motocross track. As students’ self-belief improves, they gain the social skills and confidence to undertake activities such as skiing holidays and meals out. One student commented: `I could not go out for meals with my
family, and now I can.’"
