Waverley School

Waverley School is a large, Local Authority maintained day school in Enfield, North London. Our pupils are aged 3-19 with severe and profound learning difficulties. We are located on two sites. The Early Years department is about 1 mile from the main site. The main school was purpose built in 1990 for pupils with complex needs and therefore enables access to all facilities throughout the school.

At Waverley, we believe that all pupils are entitled to the best educational experiences. We are committed to providing our students with high quality learning opportunities which help develop a sense of self with high aspiration and expectation. By working collaboratively with families, health professionals and social services we provide a nurturing environment for our students to enable them to feel safe and thereby allowing them the dignity of challenge.

We hope you find our website useful and it gives you a flavour of what we do. If you would like to find out more about us, make an appointment to visit and a member of the senior leadership team will be happy to show you around.
