Southbrook is a secondary age (11-16 years) special school in Exeter. We cater for the needs of 120 children and young people, all of whom have a range of complex needs and abilities. These could be moderate or severe learning, social and emotional difficulties, often a diagnosis of Autism or other speech, language and communication needs, sensory impairments and/or physical disabilities.

Our pupils come from a wide catchment area in Devon and travel to school by bus, taxi or, are independent travellers who may cycle, walk or use public transport.

All pupils follow the full National Curriculum appropriately differentiated to meet their learning needs.
