Our School

Pitcheroak School provides education and specialist support for approximately 140 pupils between 4 and 19 years of age with a range of additional learning needs from developmental delay to very complex learning and communication needs.

The school was last inspected by Ofsted in October 2013. Here is what the inspectors said about us…

“Pitcheroak is a good school. It is a safe, happy and harmonious place in which pupils thrive as learners…”

“Parents and carers are quick to praise the school, one saying that the school is ‘fantastic’ and another, ‘My son loves his school and is so proud to be part of it. As a parent I could ask for no more.’”

“Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage have a good start to their schooling. They settle quickly and make good progress against their starting points in each of the early learning areas.”

“Between Year 1 and Year 11, pupils make good progress. This is clearly shown when their scores for reading, writing, speaking and listening, mathematics and science are compared with those of equivalent children in similar schools nationally.”

“Sustaining the learning, development and well-being of pupils is an ethos visible throughout all the work of the school and this is helped by the strong relationships staff have with pupils and their families.”

“The outstanding support and guidance students receive over their time in the sixth form makes their transition to further education straightforward.”
