Welcome to Linden Lodge School, an exceptional special school for pupils with sensory impairment in South West London. Our pupils are at the heart of all we do and we are passionate about providing the highest possible standards of teaching and learning opportunities. Pupils each have unique learning and sensory needs and our approach is based on understanding each individual and supporting them through holistic, highly specialist programmes and approaches.

We are fortunate in having one of the largest and most highly specialist team of professionals located together in the UK. Our specialist teaching team are teachers with additional qualifications in vision impairment, multi-sensory impairment and hearing-impairment. Specialist teachers adopt an integrated and collaborative team approach to working with other specialists on-site including Habilitation Officers, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists and paediatric nurses. Together we work to understand in depth individual children’s strengths and needs and work in partnership with parents to enable pupils to achieve personalised goals.

Our campus is exceptional and provides pupils with superb opportunities for learning and development. We have fully accessible performing arts facilities, swimming and hydro and outdoor classrooms for pupils at every stage of their development. In addition we have capacity to enable pupils to make the most of learning opportunities in London through an exciting programme of enrichment and culture.

We are able to provide for pupils from a wide geographical area and a number of pupils take advantage of our excellent residential provision through weekly boarding.

As specialists in sensory impairment we are the leading advisors and providers of sensory specialist education in the region. Our outreach support service has a longstanding national reputation and provides specialist support to a number of Local Authorities and schools both mainstream and special.

Pupils at Linden Lodge School love their time here and thrive through the care and expertise of our teams and the opportunities we create.

We hope that you will visit us and we look forward to providing you with an insight into our specialist work.

Best wishes
