Welcome to Crowdys Hill School.
We are an all through special school, for children from 5 to 19 years of age. Our pupils have moderate learning difficulties, with other complex needs.
We offer an adapted National Curriculum, with a variety of extra activities to develop our pupils’ social, physical, sensory and communication abilities. We consider ourselves to be a supportive, encouraging environment where children can build their confidence, and self-esteem. We give them opportunities to visit many areas of Swindon and beyond to allow them to be part of their community. We encourage our pupils to be tolerant, caring and positive minded citizens. We feel that we produce employable citizens, who have a good understanding of what a good employee is, and how to get a job which is useful knowledge to have in these changing times for workers.
Our school has an excellent reputation in Swindon due, mainly, to our dedicated and experienced staff and our place in the community. Our pupils are frequently on trips and visits to local events and facilities, to build their confidence and independence. We offer residential trips, themed trips, theatre trips, activity trips and even visits to the seaside. Our pupils take part in local music and drama events, and have travelled as far as Bristol and to Wembley Arena to show off their performing abilities.
We have a fantastic farm on site, which is under the final stages of an upgrade at present, so we can widen our links with the community. Currently pupils learn how to look after a range of animals, from rabbits to alpacas. Most of our buildings are under five years old, which means that they are purpose built and spacious.
We have two flats where the Sixth Form pupils learn about how to look after a home and have links with a local charity, Swindon Night Shelter, where our pupils work in their local shop to develop their retail skills.
Potential admissions are welcome to come and look around our beautiful school, please call reception to arrange a tour.
We hugely value the support our parents/carers provide and we pride ourselves on clear, transparent and regular home/school communication. Our website is updated regularly. We have a school app and a texting service as well as good old fashioned letters and phonecalls.
We hope that this website is helpful and informative. If you can’t find what you want or just want more information please get in touch with us. All the details can be found on the ‘contact us’ tab.
If you are a parent or carer and would like a paper copy of any of the information on this website please contact us and this will be provided free of charge.
