Welcome to Riverston School
Our Aims and Ethos
Riverston School provides a warm, caring and stimulating environment where children will learn new skills. We excel at providing each child with the right skills to prepare them for life in the wider world. We are part of a community characterised by a profound respect for and encouragement of diversity, where important differences among children and adults are celebrated. What drives us is ensuring that children have the best possible life chances and that they are not limited by the perceptions of themselves and what they might achieve in life.

Hello and welcome to Riverston School and College. As the Headteacher of our wonderful school, I am delighted to welcome you to our website and really look forward to welcoming you, in person, to one of our Open Days in the future, so you can really experience how special we are.
At Riverston, we recognise that many families who have children with special educational needs haven’t necessarily had a positive experience of mainstream education, so we are committed to providing a nurturing, welcoming environment that supports your whole family.
We cater for secondary school students with a wide range of needs from high functioning autism to social, emotional and mental health needs. We offer support from onsite therapists and intervention services to ensure that your child’s Education, Health and Care Plan targets are achieved.
Our special education programmes offer pathways to success in small class sizes for a more personal approach. All of our staff are highly skilled with the very best up-to-date training in an ever-evolving field. We are committed to include, innovate and inspire all of our students to success.
At Riverston your child will be nurtured and will in grow in confidence. They will join our unique learning community, in which everyone feels safe, cared for, challenged, and inspired to succeed.
We look forward to welcoming you to Riverston School and College.
Angela Fairs, Headteacher
