About the School

Located inside the Lilford Centre in Wigan, students attending Lilford join us from local authority referrals for shorter-and-longer-term placements. We place a big focus on next steps and supporting students to develop the skills, knowledge, and behaviours to reintegrate back into mainstream education. We create a bespoke plan for each student uses targets to help them achieve their goals. We work hard to support students to gain qualifications which are framed around their interests and abilities. Where the system breaks down, we ensure that students are supported to continue their education.
