Welcome to Critchill School

Critchill School is an establishment which provides education for approximately 85 pupils who have complex and severe learning needs. All of our pupils have an Education, Health and Care Plan and we have a very wide range of abilities within our pupil population.

Each pupil’s needs are carefully and individually evaluated, so that within the context of our well-developed and profoundly personalised curriculum, all of our pupils can aspire to reach exceptional standards.

We believe that pupils should enjoy school and have fun while they learn. Our staff are committed to work as a team to provide the opportunity for a specialist education, enabling all children to develop a full range of academic, functional and independent skills. We are ever keen to work with parents, carers, other stakeholders and professionals to ensure continuity of approach 

The school is situated on the outskirts of Frome within ‘green’ and spacious grounds. 

Over recent years we have completed major updates to learning spaces, specialist resource areas and our playground. 

We are a forward looking special school that recognises that all of our pupils can achieve their full potential. 

Please do contact us if you would like to know more about the school.
