Welcome - South Downs School
South Downs is a special school for pupils with significant, complex needs. It is a pleasure and a privilege to be able to lead this exceptional school alongside our outstanding staff team.
We value our partnerships with parents and carers, and work in collaboration with them to deliver motivating learning experiences and ensure outstanding long term outcomes for each unique pupil. We offer a wealth of exciting opportunities for our pupils so that they can learn, have fun and make contributions to a wider community.
At South Downs, our skills based, developmental curriculum has a particular emphasis on developing independence, wellbeing and learning outside of the classroom.
We promote many forms of inclusion and we are proud to be a UNICEF Silver Award Rights Respecting School in light of our work in promoting children’s rights. We are currently working towards a quality mark for Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) education.
