Our School

Pitcheroak School provides education and specialist support for approximately 150 pupils between the ages of 4 and 19. All pupils that attend the school have additional learning needs from developmental delay to very complex learning and communication needs.

The school was last inspected by Ofsted in October 2018.  Here is what the inspectors said about us when they last visited:

“The school is a confident, outward-looking and calm community.”

“Pupils achieve well during their time at the school, personally and academically. They make and keep friends and are very well prepared for life beyond school.”

“Parents and carers believe that Pitcheroak School helps pupils and families flourish. Parents and carers are confident that pupils enjoy coming to school and that they benefit from high-quality care.” 

“Bullying in the school is infrequent but it is dealt with sensitively if it occurs.”

“Staff in the school know what to do if they have safeguarding or welfare concerns. They are well trained…vigilant and alert to potential issues.”

“Pupils are doing well across all key stages, including in the Sixth form, taking their individual starting points into account.”

“Pupils behaviour and attendance are good. Praise and positivity abound around the school.”
