Percy Hedley School - Newcastle

Percy Hedley School is a non-maintained special school on the outskirts of Newcastle upon Tyne. We offer a unique approach to teaching pupils with disabilities. Teachers, Educational Psychologists, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists, Nursing Services, Conductor-Teachers, Teachers of  Hearing Impairment, a Teacher of Visually Impairment and other specialists work collaboratively offering a high class education, which supports pupils, aged 2- 19, to reach their potential.

Since 2015, we also offer services beyond the age of 19 years old.

In  Ofsted inspections (2013 and 2018) we were judged outstanding in all areas within.

"Even alongside other outstanding schools Percy Hedley stands out as a beacon of excellence".

As a Teaching School we work in collaboration with a range of other schools, outside agencies and both of Newcastle's universities to develop pioneering, best practice outcomes in education.

We offer a range of provision from short break care through to term time residential placements and now a 52 week residential service.
