Broadstones School is a DFE registered independent special school. It caters for learners aged 13-16 that find traditional school settings problematic and find learning through vocational activities beneficial. Our motto is ‘To educate, Motivate and Inspire Young People to Achieve in a Nurturing Environment’.

We specialise in helping those that may have fallen behind or out of education due to social, emotional or mental health issues to catch up and identify a clear path to post 16 education.

Our recent Ofsted report states Broadstones is a GOOD school, where learners “make good progress” and are “happy and feel safe in the school.”  “Staff are quick to form excellent relationships and re-build pupils’ self-confidence and self-esteem” and “teachers design work to meet the personal needs and interests of each pupil. As a result, pupils engage in their learning and make good gains in their progress and development.” The school’s “approach is re-building pupils’ broken understanding of how to be successful in society. Staff are skilful in nurturing and supporting pupils’ social and emotional needs.
