About Fosse Way
Fosse Way is a special school for children and young people with a very broad range of abilities. The school is co-educational and takes in children between the ages of 3 - 19. All our pupils, for a variety of reasons, find it difficult to be successful within mainstream schools as full-time pupils. All students have a Statement of Special Educational Needs.
Fosse Way caters for students with complex, severe and profound learning difficulties including autistic spectrum disorders. Pupils may have communication difficulties, sensory impairment and physical disabilities. The school offers specialist provision for male and female students with autistic spectrum disorders and has 12 residential places available for pupils who need an extended educational programme within a consistent and structured environment. For access reasons the residential provision is unsuitable for students who are wheelchair users. From September 2006 up to six students with ASD will be able to attend Norton Hill Comprehensive School supported by Fosse Way Staff.
