We provide a quality education that puts every child at the centre of their learning so that they are able to celebrate their strengths and overcome their barriers.About Us
The Link School provide a quality education for children and young people aged 4 to 18 with speech, language and communication needs including autistic spectrum conditions and Pathological Demand Avoidance. We aim to put every child at the centre of their learning so that they can celebrate strengths and overcome their barriers. We aim for learners to develop high self-esteem and confidence and the ability to understand and value others.
Every child is important and we are ambitious for their education. We aim to guide and support their learning enabling them to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes that recognise and fill gaps in understanding and move learners forward. The foundations set for life- long learning prepare our children and young people well for a positive future.
Learners follow a pathway system from school entry which enables them to work alongside peers with similar needs and to benefit from specialist strategies to match their learning needs. In the Secondary department a range of appropriate accredited courses are offered to match their given pathway, including pre-entry and entry qualifications – functional skills, B Tech and GCSE’s.
Academic learning is complimented through a joint educational and therapeutic model of support. The school has its own therapy team, comprising of Speech and Language therapists, Occupational therapists and a School Counsellor who work towards helping young people overcome their barriers so they are in a place to learn continuously and make the most of opportunities offered.
As a team we strive for excellence in all areas, working to be the best that we can be for our children and young people who deserve the absolute best we can offer.
