Kirkleatham Hall School

"Unlocking Potential"



Welcome to Kirkleatham Hall School Led by the individual needs of each child.


At Kirkleatham Hall School, we believe that every person is important and has a part to play in making us a special school. It is through this belief that we aim to promote equality of opportunity for pupils with a wide range of learning difficulties, including those with autistic spectrum disorder. Our pupils are aged from 2 -19 years and are placed within 4 discrete departments ( Woodlands Nursery, EYFS / Primary /Secondary and Further Education – FE)


Led by the individual needs of each child, our expert and enthusiastic staff believe in ‘Unlocking Potential’.


They do this by providing a personalised approach to learning for pupils, all of whom are constantly challenged and encouraged to achieve their best.


St Cuthberts church



Situated in a conservation area within the delightful and historical village of Kirkleatham, directly opposite St Cuthbert’s Church (which dates from 1763) we aim to provide a safe, secure and purposeful environment in which all of our pupils can thrive.


Our first-class provision and outstanding quality of care are designed to meet both the needs of differing groups of pupils and to enhance their learning experience, while minimising any barriers to learning.


Well-equipped classrooms provide appropriate levels of stimulation, while specialist programmes and therapies support our pupils’ physical and sensory needs. The use of iPads, communication aids, switches, touch screens and other state-of the- art technologies all help to reinforce pupils’ learning and to promote independence. The result is that, from Woodlands Nursery through to our further education department, all our young people make exceptional progress.


In addition we are supported by a multi-disciplinary team of health professionals including : School Nurse, Speech and Language Therapy, Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy .


The fantastic local resources support our commitment to OPAL (Outdoor Play and Learning) and the Forest School curriculum, allowing learners to have a truly immersive and exciting learning environment in which to learn.
