Welcome to Addington School's Website!

Addington School is an Outstanding Special School for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities. All our pupils’ primary need is a learning difficulty with almost half also having Autism. I hope that you find this website informative and that it gives you a picture of our pupils, curricula, facilities and services.

All our pupils have an Education and Health Care Plan or a Statement of Special Educational Needs and we are able to accommodate up to 205 pupils, aged between 3 and 19 years.

Based in Woodley and a Wokingham maintained school, we are very fortunate to have a purpose built environment which makes our school a fantastic place for learning and wider curriculum enrichment. We have particular strengths in our Music Specialist status and considerable expertise in teaching strategies for pupils with learning difficulties as well as Autism.

We are committed to tailoring a personalised Educational Programme for your child to ensure that he or she reaches their full potential. To do this we encourage our families to work alongside us and offer support services to help parents and carers in pursuit of excellent outcomes for their child.

Most importantly we believe in a positive ethos based on mutual respect where we are all learning together to be 'a community committed to excellence and the development of the potential of all’.

Whether you have a child already at the school, or are a prospective parent or carer, please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss your child’s education.
