Sad news: It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of our former Chair of Governors, Albert Hatton at the age of 87yrs.

We are a Specialist Support School for pupils with:
ASC- Autistic Spectrum Condition (with learning difficulties)
PMLD- Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties
SLD- Severe Learning Difficulties
MLD- Moderate Learning Difficulties (with additional complexity resulting in significant difficulties in learning)
Cromwell High School makes 3 fundamental commitments for the education of our pupils. That they will learn:
- as much about the wider world as possible- learning to respond to the widest sensory environments and connecting their everyday experiences with the wider world that produces them- for example learning/experiencing that the water from the tap falls as rain, collects in the reservoir is cleaned and travels through pipes.
- to be as successful in the world as possible- especially in the functional skills of communication, understanding organisation, ability to focus on learning, ability to work with other people.
- to grow as caring, confident and responsible citizens.
