Pegasus School is an independent specialist day and residential school for young people aged 8 to 19 years with severe learning disabilities, autism and associated challenging behaviour. Many of our students also have mental health and therapy needs.

The School is situated in the grounds of Caldwell Hall; five miles from Burton on Trent on the borders of Staffordshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire.

The ethos of Pegasus School is our individualised approach. Every element of a student's package is bespoke to that individual; whether that be the number of nights they stay, their specific routine, the input from professional services, diet, cultural and religious preferences, etc.

Until students are 16 years old, education and care are located in one building with onsite professional support services. This gives us the opportunity to truly build a multi-disciplinary package around the young person. This integrated approach means we are able to fully meet the needs of young people with very complex needs and ensure they make progress, develop independent skills and are able to engage socially with others. This level of support continues when the students move to the on-site college at the age of 16.
