Welcome

Welcome to our website; I hope it gives you a taste of the exciting curriculum we have on offer here at St Philip’s. I am very proud to be the Headteacher of St Philip’s School and to work with such a dedicated staff team and enthusiastic students. Our facilities are fantastic and support us to create a learning environment that helps all of our students achieve their full potential, both socially and academically. We pride ourselves on our ability to support students to become as independent as possible in all areas of their lives. Through hard work and perseverance, all of our students progress to meaningful outcomes. Thank you for visiting the St Philip’s website and do get in touch if you require any further information.

Ben Walsh - Headteacher


St Philip’s is a school where individuals are valued for themselves and where all are expected to give of their best


Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
