Ivel Valley School is an Area Special School for pupils aged from 3 to 19 years, who have complex learning needs. We have a wide range of experience and expertise in addressing the needs of pupils with moderate, severe, profound and multiple learning difficulties. Many of our pupils have additional needs, such as sensory and physical difficulties.
We have a growing number of pupils with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Ivel Valley School is recognised as a centre for teaching children with autism and related communication difficulties.
The school was formed in September 2010 following the merger of two existing special schools, Hitchmead and Sunnyside.
