As a Special School and following Government Guidelines Lisburne School is fully open to all our children and staff.

Lisburne School is a Primary aged special school over three sites that caters for children with; Severe Learning Difficulties, Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties and those with Autistic Spectrum Conditions and Complex needs.

Children are placed in small class sizes with a high staff:pupil ratio. Staff are highly skilled and knowledgeable, developing expertise closely linked to the needs of the children in their classes. As well as the main site in Offerton, EYFS children are based at Hollywood Park and we have our younger children at Overdale in Romiley. Our new build plans to open in September 2022 when all three sites will merge. 

Due to the situation with Covid-19 we are unfortunately unable to show any prospective new parents/ carers around school. We have therefore made a video to illustrate what Lisburne looks like and how we work together in school to support children’s learning and development. We will be happy to arrange a virtual meeting with parents/ carers to discuss your child’s individual needs. Please click here to view the video
