Welcome to The Russett School!

The Russett School is an all through special academy based in the village of Weaverham in Cheshire.  Our academy is part of The Russett Learning Trust and offers specialist education for pupils aged 2 – 19 years with severe learning difficulties (SLD) and/or complex learning needs and autism.

We are extremely proud of our school, our intent is to provide an outstanding education for all who attend The Russett.  We value working together with all of our families to offer advice and support to achieve shared outcomes.

We are strong in our belief that all children and young people deserve only the very best.  Our bespoke curriculum is delivered by a highly skilled and dedicated staff team.  Enjoyment and motivation for learning is firmly situated at the heart of what we do, focusing on developing skills in confidence, character, individuality, independence, resilience and tolerance.

Our aims are;

  •  To provide outstanding educational opportunities through a personalised curriculum- cognition & learning, communication & interaction, mental health and wellbeing and physical & sensory needs
  •  To prepare our children and young people for the next stage of education and transition into adulthood
  • To ensure that no pupil/young person leaves without a means to communicate
  • To promote skills of independence for a happy and fulfilled future

We hope you find our website helpful and informative. If you would like to ask any further questions or request a visit to us at The Russett School please contact the school office.

We look forward to meeting you!
