In accordance with government guidelines the school will open to a wider group of children from Monday 8 June.

We cannot safely reopen the whole school. Attendance will be limited and prioritised based upon supporting children of key workers, those at key transition points and students in most need of support in school across all year groups.

Please contact the school office on admin@linksec.org.uk for any further enquiries.

Welcome

It is my privilege to be Principal of The Link Secondary School since September 2017. I lead a well-qualified and dedicated staff who enable our students to work towards the school vision of achievement for all, improving communication skills and promoting well-being and greater independence.

Our small special school values all our students equally, recognises them as individuals and provides a calm, nurturing environment for them to flourish.

The Link Secondary School benefits from being part of The Orchard Hill College Academy Trust (OHCAT). OHCAT, together with Orchard Hill College, forms a family of specialist providers with a focus on students achieving their maximum potential within their local communities.

The Link Secondary School is aspirational and through a purposeful learning environment, we hold high expectations of our students. Students follow a pathway system which allows them to access the most appropriate external courses including functional skills, GCSEs, ASDAN and BTEC courses. Learning is supported and complemented by the work of our therapy team, which includes our own Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, School Counsellor and even a school dog.

We work in partnership with parents and carers, and with the wider community, to prepare our pupils for their future lives. The value of social and personal development is recognised as an integral part of our school values.

Our young people deserve the very best and we aim for The Link Secondary School to provide excellence in all areas to meet this.

Mr John Reilly - Principal
