Welcome to our Website.  Mill Ford is a school for children and young adults with severe and profound and multiple learning difficulties, including pupils with complex medical needs and autistic spectrum conditions. Safeguarding children and young people is paramount in all we do, so that children and young people can learn and thrive in a safe environment.

Mill Ford is a friendly, child-centered school that offers a broad and balanced National Curriculum. We place a strong emphasis on developing student's communication, social skills, physical development and independence in a nurturing environment, where pupils feel able to take risks.

We value every child and young person as an individual and are proud of all they achieve.

I do hope that you enjoy our website and if you are interested in finding out more please contact us and ask to speak to myself or my deputy, Simon Payne.
