New Siblands is an Outstanding special school for boys and girls aged from 2 to 19 with exceptional needs.

At our recent Ofsted inspection, inspectors said,

Pupils thrive in all areas of learning at New Siblands School. Through the exceptionally strong and trusting relationships with staff, pupils relish learning across a breadth of subjects. Consequently, pupils learn how to communicate their feelings, ideas and views very well.

Leaders’ ambitious vision for the educational, social and emotional development of all pupils is shared by staff. Through the carefully crafted, personalised curriculum, pupils’ lives are transformed. This unrelenting focus on developing pupils’ communication skills is impressive.  (OFSTED, February 2024)

Our vision is at the heart of what we believe, what we do and the direction we are heading in. It is expressed in our vision and values statement, aims and goals.

We seek to ensure our pupils receive the challenge, care and support needed to achieve their potential. New Siblands is a school that seeks to challenge mind sets and help our pupils to have a true sense of belonging in their school and wider community whilst celebrating success every step of the way.

New Siblands School is part of Enable Trust and we are very excited to share a short film with you, showcasing not only what we do at New Siblands but also at Culverhill school and across the trust.
