Old Nailsworth Road
Brantwood Specialist School is situated in Nether Edge, Sheffield and provides daytime only or residential school placements to boys and girls aged 7-19 and respite care.
We have expertise in working with children with complex special educational needs or learning disabilities whose needs cannot be met elsewhere for example:
• Autistic Spectrum Condition
• Children displaying signs of autism or autistic traits (with or without an autism diagnosis)
• Asperger’s or high functioning autism
• Attention and concentration difficulties
• Attachment and anxiety related difficulties
• Children and young people deemed hard to engage including those with ‘school phobia’
Brantwood Specialist School offers the opportunity for children with special needs to learn and grow within a holistic, inclusive educational framework. The practical, hands-on activities are underpinned by the content and assessment criteria of the National Curriculum and supported by individual therapies. We believe that education is about developing the whole person, by meeting the physical, emotional, spiritual and social, as well as their academic and learning needs. We are committed to making a positive impact on young people’s lives and helping them to become the person they want to be.
