The School

This highly regarded and heavily oversubscribed South East London SEN school is well served by public transport with tube, train and bus links only 2-3 minute's walk away. The school itself is an OfSTED outstanding special needs all through school providing Secondary education to children with severe and profound and multiple learning difficulties.
