Bamburgh School is maintained by South Tyneside Education Authority for up to 164 pupils, whose special needs cover a broad spectrum of medical, physical, social, emotional and moderate learning difficulties.
At Bamburgh we aim above all to improve the outcomes for our pupils. In our very special school, this must be achieved through a combination of challenge and nurture. Our school ethos recognises the needs of the whole child, whilst moving pupils towards their personal best. We feel strongly that progress must be measured holistically with independence standing alongside achievement – each building on the other.
Creative, challenging and imaginative lessons are at the heart of what we strive to deliver. The provision of a school environment which allows academic achievement and independence to flourish is an important part of our curriculum offer.
If, as a parent of a pupil attending this school, you require a paper copy of the information on this website, we shall provide this free of charge.
