Is your service fully accessible?

The Westminster School is a purpose built special school. There are lifts to take wheelchair users, or others with impaired mobility, between the two floors. There is a wheelchair accessible bathroom on the both floors and the ground floor and outdoor area is fully accessible. In addition, the school always ensures that there is a wheelchair accessible bus for outings.

 We have a high pupil/staff ratio. Students are taught in small class groups with experienced teachers and Learning Support Assistants able to give one-to-one help where it is needed. The teaching staff tailor the pupils’ curriculum to their individual needs.


 Where appropriate, The Westminster School is able to provide Speech and Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Physiotherapy, support for HI and VI pupils. Specialist staff work closely together and as part of a wider team with the teaching and support staff taking advice and support from Specialists within the Health Service and Local Authority.


 In addition, the school has links with a number of other professionals whom we regularly call upon for advice and to provide input in areas such as educational psychology, counselling, and mentoring.
