Welcome to Mabel Prichard School. We are a community special school for children and young people with complex needs from the ages of 2 to 19. 

At Mabel Prichard School, we believe in enabling every student to discover who they are and to realise their full potential. Our curriculum offers a broad range of opportunities to face challenge; develop independence; prepare for adulthood; discover the world around them; be safe and develop the skills and knowledge and most importantly to lead a happy, positive and fulfilled life.

Through our strong caring ethos, we support students to respect their whole community, regardless of background, race, gender, faith and disability and to celebrate diversity, so they are able to develop skills of empathy and tolerance in their life ahead.

We believe education plays a pivotal role in developing as individuals, alongside the vital input from families and other professionals whom we enjoy working closely with. The purpose of the school is to create opportunities through education for each student to value themselves and each other; develop confidence; communicate their thoughts and ideas and to enjoy discovering their strengths to take forward in their life ahead.

Please do contact us and come and visit for further information and a true sense of our school.

Our Partners

Both our primary and secondary schools are at the very heart of the community and we pride ourselves in being closely connected to our local primary (link) and secondary schools (link), so our students can enjoy all the associated benefits of integration.

We also have very strong community links and partnerships which enable our students to gain the best experience and to acquire life-long skills and understanding and to generate opportunities for independence and preparation for adulthood. We have an active PTA called FOMP.
