They arrive throughout the year into each year-group and currently there are 122 on roll (Year 5-11), this will increase to 133 which is our Pupil Admission Number.  Many of the pupils have medical diagnoses including ADHD, ASC, PTSD, PDA, ODD and Attachment Disorder. They have also experienced significant disruption to their education due to multiple school moves, fixed term and permanent exclusions and long periods of part-time or no placement in a school.  The majority of pupils are also known to one or more support agencies such as Social Services, CAMHS, the Police or Youth Offending Service.
