We have just opened our new special for Early Years and Key Stage 1 pupils -  Hatchside School. Our vision is to create a partnership of outstanding Special Schools to support the Special Needs Community in Redbridge and the  surrounding area to offer excellent opportunities for pupils and their families. 

Our new school has opened the next chapter of this vision and will grow over the next 3 years.
