Castle Hill School is located in Huddersfield, South Kirklees. We cater for the needs of learners aged 3 – 19 years with severe or profound learning difficulties. Many of our students also have complex needs linked to physical or health difficulties. Some of our students are identified as being on the autistic spectrum. Many of our students have sensory impairments and some are multi-sensory impaired.

We aim to meet the individual needs of all our students through a variety of curricula and enrichment opportunities including creative and science projects, specialist music and music interaction.

The school is organised into 3 main areas:

• Primary and Foundation (Early Years, KS1, KS2)
• Secondary (KS3, KS4)
• Sixth Form

Where possible we try to include the children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in their appropriate Key Stage (KS) groups. However, we do have some rooms designed to meet the needs of learners with ASD. When working in these rooms the learners are supported one-to-one and a teacher designs specific individualised curriculum programmes to meet their needs.

Visitors are always welcome, though it is essential to make an appointment so that we can ensure someone is available to answer your questions. Please contact us if you have any further questions or would like to come to look around.
