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.
We are very happy to welcome our prospective families into school for a tour, if you would like to arrange a visit please contact reception to make an appointment. We have also created virtual tours of our three sites, Please click here to view the video
This year we are encouraging our pupils to keep active and learn through a variety of activities – many of these are included in our “Stepping Out” programme of enrichment activities. Through exploration and discovery we can motivate children to experience their community and develop their life skills. The “Stepping Out” booklets share ideas about what pursuits can be experienced to enhance these skills such as: mini-adventures to local parks, a sleepover at a relative’s house, blending in with the community by eating and drinking in a café and many more.
