Pegasus School
Caldwell Hall, Main Street, Caldwell, DE12 6RS, UK Swadlincote
+44 (0)1283 761352


Pegasus School is situated in the grounds of Caldwell Hall, 5 miles from Burton on Trent on the borders of Staffordshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire.

The school provides education and care for children and young people between the ages of 8-19 years, who have challenging behaviour and severe and complex communication and learning difficulties. The school provides individual bedrooms for students on a 52 week basis


At Pegasus School all education, therapy and care are focussed on the development of interactive skills. Giving students the skills to communicate effectively increases their motivation and confidence, allowing them to access the wider curriculum.

Classrooms are large and spacious, allowing teachers the freedom to set up individualised work and play areas without overcrowding. Students also have access to a gym, light and dark rooms as well as soft play facilities.

We aim to meet our students’ needs by fulfilling our Social Inclusion Policy in the areas of:

  • Physical needs
  • Social needs
  • Learning needs
  • Emotional needs
  • Material needs
  • Medical needs

Also to create a social and learning environment that addresses behavioural difficulties through the development of core interactive skills.

At Pegasus School we aim to redress these areas in an holistic and therapeutic manner. We emphasise initially:

  • Interpersonal targets such as social communication and social organisation
  • Careful balance of intellectual targets to develop confidence and self image
  • Appropriate use of choice and motivation

These skills underlie all achievements in learning and should be the basic tools of the instructor.

As part of the Inclusion Policy all students within post compulsory education and training have the opportunities to college link courses, work experience and regular community access during the formal and extended curriculum.


The school is fortunate to have several options in close vicinity for children and young people to access facilities outside of the school day. Within easy walking distance lies the village of Rosliston which provides a friendly informal access to village shops and also gives the pupils access to a doctors surgery. Rosliston Forestry Centre, again within walking distance, provides the school with leisure and work facilities. There is a café; putting green; soft play and craft shops, as well as gardens and a wild life centre. Our 16+ students are able to develop their vocational skills in this setting.

The school itself provides individual bedrooms for each and every student, personalised to meet individual needs and tastes. There are also comfortable living and leisure areas. The school has an external hard court area, which provides additional play areas as well as security. Staffing is provided at a very high level, most usually 1:1 which allows the school to make full use of the two mini-buses to enable the children and young people to access outside facilities


All children and young people referred to Pegasus will have severe learning difficulties with a combination of communication, learning or autistic spectrum difficulties.

On receipt of an enquiry the school will make a statement in respect of the suitability for placement. If all parties are supportive of the placement the following procedures are undertaken:

  • An external observational assessment undertaken by experienced members of staff - this is an informal assessment
  • Full assessment will take place which includes members of staff from the care team, therapy team and education
  • Decision taken if appropriate to offer placement
