Welcome from the Head


Welcome to our school website. It is my great privilege to lead such a unique special school and I hope that you find all the information you are looking for, if not please do 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 and young people with significant additional needs. Teachers, therapists and special support assistants work together in trans-disciplinary teams to meet the individual needs of every pupil. Together, and through detailed analysis of their presentation, 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.
