Our School

Why families choose Astley Park.

The Pupils, Staff, Governors and Friends of Astley Park School would like to welcome you to our very special school.

Built in the early 1960s, situated in a beautiful park side setting, Astley Park offers a wide range of educational and life-skill opportunities to all the young people who attend the school.

Our approach to learning is child-centered and we always take the time to listen to our young people who communicate their ideas to the Leadership and Management team - usually via the School Council.

Using our vast range of resources, our dedicated staff have achieved; and helped the pupils to achieve many awards and accolades, which we are very proud of:

  • Eco Schools Awards
  • Healthy Schools
  • Woodland Trust Gold Award
  • Sustainable School
  • RHS Growing School
  • LPPA Leading Parent Partnership Award
  • Chairman's Challenge Winner
  • Learning Excellence Award

Working in collaboration with parents, carers and other outside agencies, Astley Park School actively promotes Independent Learning for our students and provides the support that is required to achieve this.

Throughout the Primary and Secondary Phases, the use of Sign-along; Communicate in Print; and PECS helps our young people to communicate with others effectively in school and at home.

Make an appointment to come and see us - you will always receive a warm welcome....
