Schools for children with Special Educational Needs
Every child should have the opportunity to achieve their best at school, develop personal and life skills and make a successful transition in to adulthood.

Depending on your child’s needs they might go to a mainstream school or one of Islington’s three schools for children with special educational needs.

Islington’s SEN schools

The borough has three specialist schools providing high quality learning and development opportunities for young people with support needs. All three schools have distinct primary and secondary departments catering for children and young people throughout their school years.

Islington borough  believes in providing an inclusive education and you will find all the specialist schools co-located with mainstream schools. For more information you can click through to the schools’ own websites:

Islington borough will always look at meeting special educational needs through local provision first before considering provision out of borough.
