There are three schools in the Believe Engage Succeed Trust:
Albany School is based in Bury St. Edmunds, is a Secondary Provision with 54 students. Its learning community includes Years 7 to 9 (KS3), as well as Years 10 and 11 (KS4). In addition to KS3 PRU places, where students coming to The Albany are looking to return back to their original or an alternate secondary school, The Albany has been commissioned to deliver 8 KS3 places for students with complex SEMH needs who may remain with us for a longer period of time before reintegrating to a secondary setting or transitioning to our KS4 offer.
Riverwalk School caters for 185 pupils aged 3 -19 from Nursery through to Sixth Form, who have severe, profound and complex learning needs. The school is located in Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, where the school has just moved into extensively refurbished and remodelled building which provides a very modern and spacious special school. Riverwalk’s Early Years provision has a modern building on a site, which it shares with a local Bury St. Edmund’s primary school. Pupils are placed at Riverwalk School by Suffolk County Education Authority.
Warren School, based in Lowestoft, is a special school for 115 children and young people with severe and complex learning difficulties (SLD) with some learners having profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD).The school caters for learners from the age of 3 in our Nursery through to those aged 19 in our Sixth Form. The majority of our learners stay at the school for their Post 16 education. All of the school’s learners have either a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education Health and Care Plan and admission is via Suffolk County Education Authority.
BEST will always welcome new schools who would like to join us. You can be at any stage of your own development but perhaps feel that partnering with another group would help you accelerate your own ambitions.
