The Walnuts School is an all age community special school and Children’s Home currently catering for 180 pupils from Reception to Year 14.  All pupils are on the autistic spectrum or have social communication difficulties.

The school is divided into three departments each led by an Deputy/Assistant Headteacher.  The Lower School Department is based at Hertford Place, Bletchley; Middle School and most of the Upper School Department, together with the Children’s Home accommodation, are based at the main site in Hazeley, and the majority of our Post 16 students are based at Fenny Stratford, Bletchley.

At The Walnuts our overall aim is to prepare our children and young people for transition to adult life, teaching skills within a meaningful social context and providing opportunities for generalisation across settings.  This includes enabling our pupils to become as competent and confident at social communication and social interaction as they are able.

We are committed to providing an enjoyable, quality education for all our pupils within a friendly atmosphere where they can fulfil their potential, grow in confidence and most importantly be happy. We believe strongly in working in partnership with parents and carers placing a great emphasis on parental engagement.

I hope you found this introduction to our school useful and that you find any other information you need on this website. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you would like to know more.

Kind regards

Jonathan Budd

Executive Headteacher
