Humberston Park School is an outstanding special school, offering highly-specialist day provision for 3-19 year olds who have complex, severe and profound learning difficulties.  Many pupils at the School have additional needs requiring multidimensional physical, sensory and medical interventions.

At Humberston Park School we are forward-thinking, challenging the expected norms so we transform practice and learning.  By innovating and creating learning opportunities through a transdisciplinary approach, the pupils thrive, enjoying a friendly, safe and supportive environment, where they can take risks, be creative and expressive whilst learning relevant and meaningful skills through personalised learning.
