We are a Secondary Special School, Single Academy Trust for pupils aged from 11-18. The school caters for a total of 90 pupils.
GSSC provides education for pupils that will have Severe or Profound Multiple Learning Difficulties, Communication, Physical, ASD, Multi-Sensory Impairment and Complex Medical Needs. Some of our pupils will have a dual diagnosis.
GSSC is a purpose built school set in its own grounds in the Goldings area of Northampton. The accommodation offers a friendly environment and provides many modern facilities for pupils. Facilities include fully equipped music and drama studio, a sensory room, conductive education suite, movement room, a hydrotherapy pool and an interactive classroom called the ‘Clubhouse’ which all provide the latest in visual and sensory stimulation.
Our RIDE Curriculum has been designed to provide all pupils across Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 with an accessible learning experience, which allows pupils to take ownership of and lead their own learning, encouraging thinking and problem solving skills. As a school we strive to ensure that all of our pupils achieve their personal best. We are aspirational for our young people and provide the scaffold to enable our pupils to be aspirational for themselves. We believe that our pupils have immense potential and we are the facilitators who allow our pupils to grow and aspire.
All staff at GSSC are committed to supporting the practice and ethos of CE as an integral part of our whole school curriculum.
