Sandside Lodge is a special school catering for pupils aged between two and nineteen who have a statement of Special Educational Needs or Education Health and Care Plan.
All our pupils have learning difficulties and many have additional and complex needs including such as autism, physical disabilities and sensory impairments.
We are a UNICEF Rights Respecting School Level 2. Pupils are taught that they have a role, a place and a voice in all things they do.
All sorts of people have helped us make the move to our new school building. Thank You.
We are still learning and very excited at how much our new facilities, provided and enhanced by the generosity of local people, will be able to help our students.
Our new building has won first prize at the National Constructing Excellence Awards for 2019.
