Special Educational Needs Secondary School

St. Clares is a purpose built school for students aged 11-16 whose educational needs cannot adequately be met in mainstream schools.

Situated in the south western part of the City of Derby, the school caters for approximately 90 students all of whom have a Statement of Special Educational Need. The majority of our students have moderate learning difficulties, some have associated emotional and behavioural needs and others have Hearing Impairment.

Built in the 1970’s the school has excellent facilities including attractive, well equipped classrooms, a Design Technology Workshop, Food Technology Room, Information Technology Suite, Science Room, Art Room, Gymnasium/Sports Hall and custom built Leavers Suite including a Connexions Area. The school is fortunate to be set in large school grounds with generously proportioned play areas and school playing field. A Multi-Use Games Area was built in Summer 2005 offering facilities for playing Football, Basketball, Netball and Mini Tennis.

The school provides all students with a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum including a full entitlement to the National Curriculum.
