Dorin Park is a specialist all-age school for children and young people with physical difficulties, complex moderate learning difficulties, complex medical needs and general complex needs. Children can be admitted to us at any stage but most of our entrants arrive in Reception or Year 7 and are usually transferring to us from mainstream early years settings or mainstream primary schools. Our learning experience is designed to meets the needs of our students by marrying excellent personal development opportunities with an appropriate life skills curriculum and a relevant academic curriculum. Developing communication is a priority throughout the school. All our Upper School students are given a Flight Path for their future development which is reviewed regularly as they move through the school to ensure they achieve their potential in all areas.
Dorin Park is a school with a real sense of community – we really are a school family here. We pride ourselves on being a welcoming school with a strong emphasis on pastoral care alongside a rigorous academic education tailored to the needs of the individual. We believe in and practise personalised learning to meet the very different needs of all our students. You can find out more about the profile of our students on the Our Pupils page. We are a popular choice with parents, and visitors comment on the lovely calm and purposeful atmosphere within the school.
Prospective parents and students are welcome to visit and experience the school for themselves. If the SEN team at Cheshire West and Chester has indicated that Dorin Park may be a suitable place for your child, please see the Admissions page for details of how to arrange a tour.
