Winchelsea School

Winchelsea School logo

Winchelsea is a community special school committed to meeting the needs of pupils aged 4 to 16 with a wide range of learning difficulties. 

We have a committed, knowledgeable and experienced staff team and we pride ourselves on creating bespoke packages for pupils which meet their individual needs and prepare them for life. We strongly believe we have created a safe, welcoming and inspiring environment which allows our children to feel secure and be successful.

We are passionate about improving outcomes for our pupils and we work very closely with families, outside agencies and organisations to facilitate this. To provide further support, we also provide an outreach service to a wide range of local schools.

The school also provides satelite provision in Canford Heath Junior School, Old Town Infant School and Magna Academy. Please see the satellite provision document for further information.
