The majority of the young people who come to Wings Nottingham have Education, Health and Social Care plans in place (formerly known as SEN statements) whether they come to the school as a day student, a residential school student or as a placement within the children’s home provision, where their education is provided elsewhere.
The school is an historic building set in extensive grounds within a small Nottinghamshire village. Both the grounds and the school buildings lend themselves to both on and
off-site learning. Facilities include:
- Traditional learning spaces (max 8 pupils per class)
- Smaller nurture learning spaces (for one to one & small group work)
- Full sized sports hall
- Extensive grounds and playing fields
Wings School Nottingham provides a broad national curriculum with subject specific classrooms and learning spaces for science, history, geography, design and technology, music, health and beauty, food technology, information technology and horticulture.
Following an assessment, Wings School Nottingham offers a gradual transition period for children and young people in order to settle them as calmly as possible in to their new school life and residential setting. If there are initial difficulties in settling in to the learning environment, lessons can be delivered within the residential areas until pupils are ready.
In addition to formal timetabled lessons, KS4 pupils are provided with careers and college guidance, social and economic skills and work experience to prepare them for adult life.
We work in partnership with transition teams and local authorities to provide a planned transition to life and work after school for all young people.
