It is a real privilege to lead West Oaks Special School, which has a strong tradition
for SEN excellence.

We pride ourselves on our educational philosophy, knowing that whatever we do, we
put the needs of our children first, whilst also striving for excellence for everyone in
our school community.

West Oaks School is a 2-19 aged SEN School with the current capacity to educate
440 pupils on our three sites, the Boston Spa Learning site, Woodhouse
Learning site and Headingley Learning site.

In the future, our pupil numbers will grow to five hundred, as our third site at
Headingley Learning continues to grow in capacity.

All our pupils have an Education Health and Care Plan, and our sites are generic all
age and we educate children with a wide range of needs including profound,
multiple, and complex conditions, autistic spectrum conditions and severe learning

If you cannot find what you are looking for on our website, please contact the school
for more information or visit us on one of our open days.

Best wishes
