About Magdalen Court School
Magdalen Court School provides education for up to 80 pupils with special educational needs. The focus for the school is to support pupils with high levels of anxiety and specific learning difficulties including autism.
Magdalen Court School strives to create an environment where each pupil’s individual strengths, talents and aptitudes are nurtured and developed. It is an inclusive school which works to provide a first-class education that encourages pupils to think independently and to develop their full intellectual, creative and physical potential. Its success is the result of the recognition of the unique worth and importance of each child.
By knowing every pupil socially, emotionally and academically, Magdalen Court School can be sure that each pupil will flourish and acquire the confidence and self-belief to achieve a fulfilling and successful future and to become confident, accomplished and ambitious young adults
Our Adventure curriculum is child led, aiming to allow children to undertake real challenges and risks, to manage and assess danger, learn to self-regulate, organise, build social and emotional skills and perseverance, improve mental health, immerse themselves in a non-competitive environment, to follow nature's calendar, and most of all to have fun.
We aim to engage all the senses. The children will experience a plethora of natural habitats from the wild Atlantic coast to the sheltered beaches on the South coast, and from the open moorland to broadleaf and coniferous forests. Our programme is full and varied and includes activities from pond-dipping to rock pooling, wild swimming to surfing and sailing
