Welcome to John Grant School
‘Working together, to be the very best that we can be’.
Thank you for visiting the John Grant School Website. As you will see as you navigate the site, we endeavor to place our pupils at the centre of all we do.
The school caters for pupils with complex needs, including severe learning difficulties and profound and multiple learning difficulties. Our age range is from 3 to 19 years of age.
The school was designated as a Specialist Sports College in July 2009. It has a number of awards that recognise the range and quality of its work, including Eco Schools and Healthy Schools status.
We are very proud to be a Specialist College for Sport and embrace active participation in a range of activities, regardless of ability. By clicking on the Sport Specialism link you will see how active and inclusive we aim to make sport for our pupils.
Our latest Ofsted report states:
‘Pupils’ progress over the past academic year is stronger than in the previous year. This is the case for pupils in all key stages, for students in the further education unit and for children in the Early Years Foundation Stage’.
‘Pupils’ confidence and sense of responsibility around the school are very evident. They particularly enjoy the company of adults, enjoy being eco-warriors and, wherever possible, can be trusted to conduct themselves around the school without too much adult support. They understand how to be safe around school’.
‘Behaviour management is a strong feature of teaching and allows learning to proceed uninterrupted and in a relaxed atmosphere’.
Whether you are looking for something specific or would like to take a virtual tour of our facilities, we hope you find our website helpful and easy to navigate.
