Welcome to Kennel Lane School

At Kennel Lane School, we are justifiably proud of our learners’ achievements. We are truly dedicated to the community that we serve. We recognise every young person as an individual who has their own special talents which need to be nurtured. We encourage every learner to be the best they can be and strive to achieve so they are proud of their efforts. We work hard to create a learning environment that is not only stimulating and celebratory but also, most importantly, meets the needs of every young person in our care.

By providing an innovative and outstanding education that is reflected by our school motto: Valuing Achievement…Encouraging Independence, we are enabling our learners to understand the world around them, become fulfilled individuals and active and compassionate citizens.

We recognise that to be successful, learners must feel safe and cared for and know their goals: our Senior Leadership Team, Support and Intervention Team, Therapists, Tutors and Class Teams understand and support the learners in their care extremely well.

Our curriculum design provides choice which allows young people to engage and enjoy their learning as well as participate in a wide range of extracurricular activities. Our learners continue to make strong academic progress, and progress on to Further Education, apprenticeships and the work place.

In a rapidly changing world in which our young people are presented with many exciting opportunities, our staff team are dedicated to preparing our learners for the challenges ahead. We want them to become independent thinkers, develop resilience and make positive contributions to our community.

We believe that our learners’ success not only depends on what the school provides but also on the quality of relationships between the home and our school. As such, we have high expectations of parents and carers to support their young person and the school in ensuring that attendance and engagement in learning is outstanding.

“The staff are all very experienced and dedicated and know the kids really well, which is so important, everyone knows everyone by name, and knows what their little quirks are and their likes and dislikes. It’s just lovely to see. They talk to the kids calmly and at their level, as they know that stress and change can trigger them. Kennel Lane does everything possible to help them.”

“When we visited Kennel Lane it just stood out. The school felt so much more relaxed, open and calm. I
felt very comfortable and at home there.”
