Head PhotoI am delighted to welcome you to Alderwasley Hall School and Sixth Form Upper Site. We are exceptionally proud of every aspect of our school and homes, from the academic and social achievement of our learners, to the outstanding specialist intervention and support we can provide for young people in our classes and our care.

The school is set in rural Derbyshire with close transport links to the diverse cities of Derby and Sheffield and we specialise in working with young people with severe and complex Speech, Language and Communication Needs incorporating High Functioning Autism. We have over 25 years of nationally recognised skill and experience within the educational field of ASD and Communication and our team of Speech and Language Therapists and Occupational Therapists is one of the largest in any school across the country. This, alongside our Mental Health Team provides us with an unrivalled level of expertise.

Our underpinning ethos of "Unconditional Positive Regard and fulfilment in life" guides all that we do and our outstanding outcomes, we believe, speak for themselves. We provide each young person with academic and social challenge through highly personalised, creatively designed programmes and curricula along with an extremely strong, well-established pastoral system of support, care and guidance. I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of our school, a school which I believe, gives young people an exceptional chance to fulfil their academic, social and independence potential.

Whilst I know that you will find the information in our prospectus interesting and informative, nothing gives you a better insight into the true ethos of a school and home than seeing it for yourself. We always welcome visitors to our school and I strongly recommend that you take time to see the school and homes.
