About our school

Head's Welcome

 Welcome to Waverley School, a special school where everyone is recognised as an individual with individual strengths.

At Waverley we endeavour to support every student to be their best. We feel it is important to build on the skills and knowledge of each individual student and begin to break down their barriers to learning. We work closely with a variety of health professionals to ensure health and therapy needs are incorporated into the student’s daily experiences. Our curriculums have been developed to meet the needs of our students. We develop deep understanding of our student’s motivators and interests enabling us to provide learning opportunities which are fun and enriched. We see every minute at school as a learning opportunity and strive to create learning environments which not only meet the student’s needs but inspire and develop a sense of wonder.

Despite having over 100 students, we feel we have created a school which feels like a small family school. Our students make us proud every day. We hope you will visit the school, so they can show you themselves how truly wonderful they are.
