Welcome to Bishopswood Secondary where Sharon Hickles, our assistant head teacher, oversees the department. There are four classes in our secondary department which is co-located in Maiden Erlegh Chiltern Edge school grounds.
We have a suite of rooms adapted to meet the needs of young people with Special Needs and disabilities, within the Maiden Erlegh Chiltern Edge main teaching building and an annexe. We have four classes with five teaching rooms, hygiene areas and toilet facilities to meet the students' personal needs, a hydrotherapy pool, sensory room and quiet room. There is an outdoor Activezone and sensory garden. We have access to Maiden Erlegh Chiltern Edge’s facilities, including the canteen, main hall and grounds. Swimming sessions take place at the public pool at Henley Leisure Centre.
Learning programmes in the secondary department help promote social confidence, and independence, and encourage an enthusiasm for learning new life skills that will help prepare them for the next stage in their life. Students follow an adapted national curriculum to develop communication, literacy, numeracy, computing and life skills. Pupils with profound and multiple learning difficulties or complex needs follow an individualised, multisensory and therapeutic curriculum.
