At Woodcroft we work continuously to improve what we do in order to make every placement a success. The school opened in 1963 and is a family owned independent special school, registered and inspected by Ofsted and approved by the Department for Education. The National Autistic Society accredits our provision and we meet the Investors in People standards for staff development. We are proud of our school and appreciate your interest.

The school is set in beautiful surroundings on the edge of Epping Forest and within daily reach of London. We are close to local shops, a library and other services, so pupils can enjoy many activities within the wider community.

We have an experienced, committed and approachable team of teachers, therapists and support staff. We work in partnership with parents and local authorities to offer a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum as well as practical support and care.

Woodcroft School works flexibly to meet the needs of its pupils. We provide a high staff to pupil ratio wherever needed – whether a child requires extra support in a mainstream school, or is likely to make more progress at a special school. With intensive therapy and support, Woodcroft aims to prepare pupils to continue their education within their local authority.

Dual placement and transition support linked to a mainstream school may also be available for some pupils. Further details of these and other ways we can help are available from the head teacher.
