Welcome to our website! I hope that it captures some of the warmth, purpose, and drive of our school community.
Stormont House is a secondary special school (age range 11-17), so all our students have special educational needs and/or disabilities. They also arrive with untapped strengths and talents. It is our mission to address those needs but also to identify and nurture their interests and talents, challenging as well as supporting every student to prepare them for adulthood. We celebrate the rich diversity of our students, many of whom are neurodivergent and so approach interaction in unique way.
Our ultimate objectives for our students are for them to
- make greater progress with their learning, emotional and social development than they would anywhere else, and for that progress to be indistinguishable from non-disadvantaged peers with similar starting points
- have full lives, making increasingly meaningful choices about their futures, and control of their support
- be fully ready for the next stage of education, employment, or training, gaining qualifications that allow them to go on to destinations that meet their interests, aspirations, and the intention of their course of study.
Every member of the school community has a right to be treated and valued equally regardless of their age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, or economic circumstances.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, including developing their own skills and awareness as they prepare for adulthood.
