The school caters to students across Key Stages 2 - 4 that have additional Special Needs and Social, Emotional and Mental Health issues. There are three sites, all based in WF1, and one caters to students with SEN (primarily Autism) whilst the other two supports students that display challenging behaviours, are disengaged from their education and come from disadvantaged and complex backgrounds.

The school uses a Positive Behaviour approach which means that, although negative behaviours will be disciplined, the focus will be on the reasons behind those behaviours rather than the the behaviours themselves.
