Welcome to Stepping Stones

We believe in providing students with a caring, fun environment where they can truly benefit from a bespoke curriculum, technologically innovative teaching practices and the chance to grow and develop into confident, independent young men and women.

We understand the difficulties and care about the challenges that a young person with disabilities faces. We want their time at Stepping Stones to be one where they grow both academically and socially.

The school makes provision for children who have acquired processing delays due to: acute or chronic medical conditions, hemiplegia or mild cerbral palsy; those whose mental and/or emotional health is at risk due to direct or indirect trauma; and those whose mild autism creates learning needs.

We are a small school which is entering an exciting new development phase with the opening of our new site at Undershaw, the home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, in September 2016.  This will provide room to expand and provide state-of-the-art facilities and grounds.  Together our two sites will provide education from Key Stage 2 to Post 16 with both functional skills and exam curriculum pathways.

Melissa Farnham, Executive Headteacher

 "The school provides an outstanding quality of education and meets its aims very successfully. Students thrive here, developing independence and becoming confident and enthusiastic learners. They make outstanding progress because of good teaching and the exceptionally well-tailored curriculum".
