"The difficulty lies not in the new ideas, but in escaping from the old ones."

Welcome to Highfurlong School’s website.

We are extremely proud of the achievements of all our pupils.  Our aim is to ensure our pupils are the ‘best they can be’ by delivering high quality care, welfare and education.  We have high aspirations, high expectations and as a very successful school, are always moving forward to ensure that all our learners have the very best opportunities. 

Pupils are supported throughout the school by a team of highly qualified staff. All our teaching assistants are qualified to NVQ level 3 with expertise in many areas from Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC), to ICT, Disability , Sensory curriculum and Enterprise.  Our teachers are experts in teaching pupils with a wide range of additional needs from profound and multiple learning difficulties to pupils with autism.  In addition we work very closely with physiotherapists, occupational therapists and the school medical team.

The children are at the heart of everything we do and our vision is for Highfurlong to be the very best school in the country for leading change and removing barriers for young people with disabilities.
