The Avenue Special Needs Academy is a day special school for boys and girls from the age of 2 – 19 with complex Special Educational Needs.

Pupils at The Avenue School vary greatly in their needs, personalities and academic abilities.   All will have at least a Severe Learning Difficulty and some wil have Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD), Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), speech and language needs, physical needs and a combination of the above.

Pupils are grouped into mostly ability-based classes, though this can be on the basis of social ability or maturity rather than purely academic potential.
