The school will remain open, as far as is possible, for key workers’ children and those children most vulnerable.

Please contact admin@linksec.org.uk if you have any queries.

We are here to support all our families.

We will advertise dates for Open Mornings in due course.

The Team

We are a small school and have a comprehensive team to meet the diverse needs and well-being of our pupils. Therapy is at the core of our school and is what makes the Link a special school for our pupils and parents. Our therapists work in close partnership with the teaching and support staff and parents.
