A warmWelcome

Southbrook is a special school for pupils aged 11 to 16, with varied complex needs and abilities including moderate or severe learning difficulties and autism. Pupils may also have speech, language and communication difficulties, sensory impairments and/or physical disabilities. We are a Local Authority Maintained School with Foundation Trust status, and, along with 9 other special schools in Devon, are a member of SENitient Trust.

There is a lot to be happy about at Southbrook School. We are very ‘child-centred’ and dedicated to ensuring that, through our innovative, exciting curriculum and excellent use of resources, every child has the opportunity to learn…..and be the very best they can be!

  • At all times, we seek to:
  • o Respect all
