Welcome to our very special school!

A message from the Headteacher.


I would like to extend a very warm welcome to you!

It is a privilege to be the Headteacher of Montacute School. I never tire of the wonderful things that our children and young people achieve every day and being a part of their journey!

At Montacute we strive to ensure that every one of our young people is provided with their own personalised support and learning pathway delivered by specialists in their field. We believe in providing an eclectic mix of interventions and enrichment experiences to enable our learners to be exposed to as many opportunities that life offers and to ensure that their every need is met.

We are very fortunate to have wonderful buildings and grounds to deliver the care and education that our young people need and deserve and we constantly review our practice and provision to see how we can continually improve.

And just as we support and encourage our young people, we invest in our fantastic staff and help them grow as professionals with a comprehensive and often personalised pathway for career development.

Montacute works hard to foster and develop relationships with a range of community groups and stakeholders. We are well supported by our NHS and privately commissioned SEND specialist colleagues who work in health and wellbeing, and in therapeutic interventions. Their support and guidance in our work enable us to not only keep our young people safe and well cared for but also ensure their physical, emotional and communication development is at the forefront of all that we do.

We enjoy sharing our facilities with the local community and offering our experience and knowledge to support children and young people with SEND beyond our school gates.

We never stand still. We aspire to greatness and I hope that when you visit our school, you will feel this ambition and celebrate the accomplishments of our inspiring learners and those who work with them day to day. .


Below, you will see our Vision. We hope that our very special school and all that we offer, will begin to come to life a little more as you read this and explore our website further. I look forward to welcoming you into our school soon!

Montacute School


Step over the threshold at Montacute school to experience the wonder of a world carefully created to empower its very special population.

Every child is unique in their talents and needs. From their smallest whisper to the loudest song every voice is heard.

We are a family, harmonising to create a world full of opportunities, wonder and joy for each of our pupils. We believe in being in tune with the unique characters, voices, learning styles and talent of all our young people and will stand alongside their other supporters to celebrate every achievement they make. 

We encourage every one of our treasured pupils and staff members to allow them to shine, sparkle, grow and change ready to take on the world.

At the end of the day when their school song has been sung and heard we are confident that the world will be able to listen and hear them too.
