The Arthur Mee centre is a former primary school and has been re-purposed to provide learning and development to around 150 students with special needs. Our Supported Learning (SEND) provision offers support to those who need extra help to live independently or prepare for work. Our dedicated team of teachers and learning support workers are passionate about the welfare and learning experience of our students but go out of their way to make sure a day at Arthur Mee is fun too!
A sensory room, accessible IT software and accessible sports facilities are just some of the resources we have available on site.
Our flexible learning programmes range from pre-entry level through to Level 1 and all learning involves visits to our other campuses to try out everything from our construction We spent our time building confidence, nurturing self-esteem, developing self-awareness and focussing on the skills our students need to thrive in work and through life in general.
