Furze Down School
A Centre of Excellence for Special Educational Needs
EYFS: Primary: Secondary: Post 16
On behalf of the staff, pupils and governors, I am delighted to introduce our school.
I was appointed to this school as a Teacher in 1995 and as Headteacher in 2015. Over the years I have seen the school develop into the outstanding provision that it is today, providing a supportive and aspirational environment for children with complex Special Educational Needs. This was recognised by Ofsted in 2006, 2009, 2014 and 2018.
Headteacher: Alison Rooney
