Welcome to our new website!

Welcome to our website

I am very proud and privileged to be the Director of Education within the Percy Hedley Foundation. We are a unique provision for special educational needs pupils, integrating high levels of direct therapy and education to optimize potential.

Our education services include two schools, a college and two residential provisions. We strive for excellence in performance and have high aspirations and expectations for every child and young person accessing our community.

We welcome all parents to take an active part in their child’s education and encourage them to form a partnership with us to ensure their children achieve best outcomes, wherever possible.

At all times we encourage our staff to inspire children and young people to try their best and for many of our children this may mean small steps of progress. We celebrate and delight in pupils’ achievements whilst ensuring our children and young people are safe as their well-being is paramount to us.

These are exciting times for staff and pupils, as ambitious plans are being developed to improve our service provision. This will enable us to continue to push boundaries in therapy, care and education within an innovative, dynamic education community.

We are proud of our education services reputation, which is increasingly being recognized nationally and internationally.

I hope you enjoy exploring our site and staff very much look forward to welcoming you to our unique services if you wish to visit.


Warmest Regards,

Lynn Watson

Director of Education
