Undershaw is a small school with a deep focus on individual happiness and well-being. It is our sole purpose to provide an environment free of prejudice and discrimination, and one where students can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

Undershaw is an independent specialist school providing a high standard of care and education for children aged 10 to 19 with mild to moderate learning difficulties and additional needs, such as ASD, cerebral palsy, hemiplegia, and medical vulnerabilities. Our focus on leading SEND Education, integrated therapy, employability, and wellbeing ensures that our provision is bespoke to each individual student.

A place where everyone is free to be.
