The school is based on two sites in Wheatley.



Up to the age of 11, children are based at a site which we share with Wheatley Nursery School and Wheatley Primary School. The main school office serving John Watson School and Wheatley Nursery School is located at the Primary site.  The Clinical Nurse works across both sites, as do the NHS Therapy staff.








Pupils of  secondary school age are based at the Steve Drywood building on the campus of Wheatley Park School.


This structure is designed to help us achieve our aim of enabling our pupils to mix socially and educationally with their mainstream peers, and for both groups to understand and accept each other as individuals and friends.

We aim for a high staff to pupil ratio. In practice this usually means class sizes of around 9 pupils with 4 staff.

There are many varied arrangements aimed at enabling inclusion opportunities with mainstream peers.
