Learning with us

At Eresby we aim to provide a learning environment where every individual pupil will develop and achieve their full potential.

Ofsted praised our lessons as ‘fun and exciting,’ saying that we always ‘make sure that pupils work really hard and do their best.’ This is exactly how we would describe our ethos!

The school building is all on one level and as well as classrooms includes a life skills room, library, sensory room, hydrotherapy pool and an computer suite. We also have plenty of outside space which allows the curriculum to be developed through outdoor learning experiences.

We have extensive grounds with play areas and quiet peaceful areas for pupils to enjoy. The grounds include covered play area for early years, playground, sensory garden, playing field, horticulture area and cycle track. Pupils have access to a wide range of clubs and facilities, which nurture their talents and help them to believe in their skills.

We believe that through our experienced teaching methods and wide ranging facilities, we are able to create a great learning experience for our pupils.

Work Experience

We aim to give all pupils aged 14-19 the opportunity to work experience within the community. The placement is organised in partnership with the student. All placements are checked for suitability for the individual student , risk assessed and approved. Once parental consent letters have been received, the work placement will commence. The Work Experience Programme teaches the students communication, respect, confidence and responsibility.  Students are accompanied by staff if needed, but also encouraged to attend independently once their confidence has grown.

Work Taster Week

As part of our careers education pupils in Key Stage 4 have the opportunity to take part in a Work Taster Week where they experience a different work environment every day accompanied by staff.  Through this students are able to gain a hands on experience of a variety of jobs.
