Our school and residential care

The Children's Trust School is a purpose built, residential non-maintained school for children aged three upwards with profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD) and complex medical needs.

The School is located at The Children's Trust's national specialist centre in Tadworth, Surrey and is one of the only special schools in the UK that provides education, therapy and care exclusively for children and young people with profound and multiple learning difficulties and complex health needs.

Our School welcomes pupils aged from two years upwards and provides a safe, caring, organised and happy environment where their individual needs can be met. In partnership with parents, we enrich each pupil's quality of life by promoting their intellectual, physical, emotional and social development.

We have over 25 residential pupils as well as a number of day places, where we offer age-appropriate education and activities, from dedicated early years classes for the youngest children, to further education-style classes for older teenagers.
