Welcome to Dovetree School. We are a school which provides highly specialised integrated education and therapeutic support for pupils.
We believe we have an outstanding whole school offer and we very much adopt a “can do” philosophy. This means that all staff in our school have a passion and conviction that our pupils are able to achieve what their potential suggests, and we endeavour to do all in our power, and beyond, to ensure this happens.
We are always aspirational about pupils’ continual success, progress and achievement. We encourage all pupils to think big and accept no restriction on what is possible for them. We formulate highly individualised timetables which are designed to help them both achieve and attain within their chosen pathway and also to offer them the best opportunities in further education and/or employment in the future.
We love having visitors and would welcome you to enjoy the Dovetree experience for yourself.
