Letter from Head of School – Jo Allen

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Northern Counties School website. I have the privilege of leading this amazing special school which has a rich history and provides individualised education packages for our pupils and I hope that you find the information you’re looking for. If not, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly.

Northern Counties School is a school that sets out to make a difference to the learning, wellbeing and future life chances of children who have a hearing impairment or visual impairment, those with profound and multiple learning disabilities and autistic spectrum disorder all of whom require education, therapy and care within a specialist communication environment.

Teachers, therapists and special support assistants work together with families and other agencies to provide the best care and educational opportunities for each pupil. Together, we believe we can unlock each child’s potential and support achievement for all.

If, after browsing our website, you believe we could be the right school for your child, please get in touch. We’d be delighted to show you more of the work we do: please contact Lisa Williams on 0191 2815821 to arrange a visit.

Jo Allen
