Welcome to Portland School

We are a split site school with a primary provision at Trent Vale and secondary provision at Blythe Bridge.  We have an amazing staff team who work tirelessly to support approximately 100 pupils with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs.  

At the heart of our school are a set of shared values where our entire school community are supported to develop a sense of Respect, Responsibility, Belonging, Independence, show a Team Approach and look after their own Mental Toughness.

As a specialist school our pupils benefit from smaller class sizes, a more practical curriculum, access to alternative accreditations and a highly trained staff team.  Both sites have spacious grounds allowing us to provide outdoor education, with our secondary site boasting specialist classrooms for Design and technology, Art and Design, Science, Food technology and PE.

I am privileged to be able to lead our school, together with Mark Townsend (Deputy Headteacher at Secondary) and George Anderson (Deputy Headteacher at Primary) through a journey of constant improvement which supports our pupils to reach their full potential and become valued and positive members of the community.
