About Our School

At SS Philip and James, we are committed to nurturing excellence in all of our pupils. Staff share a commitment to supporting any child with an additional or special need, and we strive to provide the support each pupil needs in order for them to become a motivated and successful learner.  We provide for children and young people with a wide range of special educational needs including those with:
