Special Needs


Pegasus School is a unique and inclusive Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) School. Our young people have a variety of needs and learning styles.

We can accommodate young people with moderate to severe learning difficulties and associated challenging behaviours. Current primary areas of need include; Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Attachment needs, Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) and Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD).

Our young people have previously disengaged with learning prior to admission, have a history of low education engagement and prior attainment linking into affected attendance or long absences from education. Due to presenting high levels of classroom disruption and below expected progress, in an educational setting that does not fit their learning needs, young people may also find themselves on reduced timetables.

Young people at Pegasus School have very high sensory needs along with complex behaviours, lower cognitive skills and reduced communication skills. We support our young people with high staff to young people ratios, a large rural environment, animals, community trips and specialist onsite therapy input.
