Situated in Patcham Village, Brighton, we are a school for pupils aged 11-16 with complex needs. We cater for a large range of pupils needs, including: Autistic Spectrum Conditions, Speech, Language and Communication Needs, mental health and medical needs.

We personalise learning to meet the individual needs of the pupils and place a high emphasis on developing young people's personal and academic progress. We have a dedicated staff team and work alongside a range of other professionals to ensure our young people can transfer successfully to post-16 provision.

Pupils undertake a range of accreditation, both at Patcham House and other providers, including GCSEs, functional skills, BTECs and some entry level qualifications.

Patcham House is part of the CDP Federation of 3 complex needs schools in Brighton and Hove working collaboratively with The Cedar Centre and Downs Park to provide high quality education to pupils with complex needs across the city. Placement here is via the Local Authority, see our Admissions page for more details.
