THE aNNEX sCHOOL

About Us

Bringing the world of learning to challenging students requires dedicated understanding, support and encouragement. That's why the Annex School prioritises:

  • Providing pupils with a structured, consistent routine environment with  well-defined boundaries.
  • Setting high expectations, aspirations and a ‘can do’ culture.
  • Fostering a positive relationship with the teachers and teaching assistants.


Helping to enable the School's priorities, each pupil's learning needs are overseen by the school's SENCO. The Annex School also provides a safe, secure environment in which students feel valued in - in order to progress with both academic and social learning. 

To encourage the ‘fun’ dimensions of learning via the 'Every Child Matters' ethos - to 'Enjoy & Achieve'.

Seeking to provide an ‘unconditional love’ approach to pupils making mistakes,we provide high quality teaching and learning within a planned and organized curriculum.

Maintaining regular links between tutors, key workers, social workers and
parents is also essential, as is developing a personalised learning approach
and meeting the individual needs of each child.
