A big warm welcome to our school website

At Cedar House School we pride ourselves on delivering the highest level of education and care for all of our pupils. We have established our reputation through working closely with parents, carers and other agencies to ensure that we are able to adapt programmes to meet individual needs.

All pupils are given the opportunities to discover and develop their talents in order to reach their full potential. The excellent facilities on offer, both on the school site and in the wider community, enable pupils to access a range of meaningful learning experiences which encourage them to explore the world around them.

We welcome visits from parents, carers, local authorities and other agencies, so please contact us for further information.
