Welcome to the Federation of Westminster Special Schools, Training & Outreach Service.
We are a federated group of two special schools, Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee School (for pupils with severe, profound and multiple learning difficulties) and College Park School (for pupils with autism and complex learning needs in the moderate range), as well as a Training and Outreach Service. The Federation was created in January 2012 between the two special schools. In the intervening years we have developed our Training and Outreach Service, offering training, advice and support to mainstream schools. The team is based at Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee School. More recently, we have opened the Kennet West Skills Centre on the QEII site, in partnership with Westminster Kingsway College, which provides vocationally focused education for young people at post-16 and 19. Together, the Federation aims to provide high quality specialist provision for children and young people aged 4 – 19, as well as offering unique opportunities for professional development to a wide range of interested parties.
The highly specialised work of the Federation is accomplished through the dedication, skill and flexibility of a very committed staff team. We are passionate about ensuring all our children and young people receive the best opportunities we can provide. We are also committed to helping them achieve their best in terms of their learning, independence and confidence and to support and prepare them for the next step in their education and for adult life. We do this in partnership with the many professionals and other organisations that we work with but, most importantly, we aim to work in close partnership with parents and carers who know their children best.
I hope that you will find this website helpful in providing information about the Federation and that it fulfils its purpose of enabling parents, carers and professionals to gain an insight into the education, support and training that we provide. If you have further questions then I would encourage you to contact either school for information on our planned visitor sessions.
