Abbey Hill Connect is an extension to Abbey Hill School & College. Due to the increased number of pupils requiring a special school placement, and the popularity of our school we have taken the opportunity to create satellite provision located in mainstream schools.
Our first satellite provision was created at Weston Junior Academy and has been open since September 2018. Due to its success, an additional Connect site opened in September 2019, catering for lower primary aged children (Years 1-3). Connect KS3 is located at Abbey Hill School whilst we source a suitable location within a secondary school. Once in KS4, pupils return to Abbey Hill School & College and participate in our wide range of externally accredited courses. This provides a complete pathway for children entering Abbey Hill Connect.
Abbey Hill Connect offers the opportunity for pupils to be educated by specialist staff, with the same personalised approach to learning and small class groups as those attending Abbey Hill School & College. All staff undergo the same training as their counterparts on the main site and high staff to pupil ratios continue to exist in each class.
Admission to Abbey Hill Connect is controlled via the Local Authority. Children must have an EHC Plan with either ‘Communication and Interaction’ or ‘Cognition and Learning’ as their primary need. If you require more information or to discuss the transition arrangements for your child, please contact Mrs Mottram-Clarke
