at its best

LIFT off for a new partnership

An exciting new chapter in the field of special education was launched in September when the Learning and Inspiration For Tomorrow - LIFT Partnership was created.

The new venture is a multi-academy trust looking after schools which specialise in teaching those with varied and complex needs. Our partnership will provide an ambitious offering, tailored to the abilities of learners.

Initially we will have two schools, Linden Bridge and West Hill - both in Surrey and both catering for those with special educational needs. West Hill will transition to become a primary school only by 2020.

Our partnership was also successful in an application to open a new free school for pupils with autism and it will cater for children aged from four to 19 and join the trust on opening.

We will support education professionals to promote excellence across all schools while also promoting high quality and effective standards to be a centre of excellence and promote good practice.

Our schools will use the latest educational advances in the education of pupils with special needs and maintain high standards of professional training and development for staff.

We will also share expertise, best practice and resources to ensure value for money while working together to develop and retain teachers, support staff and leaders to ensure pupils have the best possible education.

Our partnership also looking to expand our family of special schools and we welcome expressions of interest. Please email for more information.
