Cicely Haughton Community Special School

I am pleased to welcome you to Cicely Haughton School. We currently provide education for 50 pupils aged 4 to 11 years. We are a special school for children with social, emotional and mental health difficulties, whose needs cannot be met in mainstream education.

Our school is successful because of the positive relationships we develop with families and children.

We aim to provide a safe, nurturing environment which enables our pupils to maximise their potential; academically, socially and emotionally.

We encourage visitors to the school and you will be made most welcome. Please contact the office to arrange a visit.

We are on Staffordshire County Council's list of alternative providers for part time alternative provision and tutoring.
