"Lakeside is everything you would want for in a school. Lakeside is like a family who care for each other. I wouldn’t change anything about the school. First class school" Parent
Lakeside is a community special school providing for up to 81 pupils aged 2-19
It is designated for pupils with:
- Severe learning difficulties
- Profound and multiple learning difficulties
Our pupils often have a complexity of needs. We have expertise in teaching pupils with hearing and visual impairments and physical disabilities. Our pupils may have associated medical conditions including those with life limiting conditions. Our approach is both individual and holistic which enables us to provide appropriate education for all these pupils.
We serve a wide catchment area centred on the Welwyn Hatfield area which extends to Borehamwood and Potters Bar. Pupils are placed at the school by the Local Authority and all pupils require a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education Health and Care Plan naming the school.
