Ian Mikardo High School is a special school in every way.
All our students have severe and complex social, emotional and behavioural difficulties (SEBD) and statements of special educational need. Many have been excluded from other schools and are regarded as unteachable when they join us, from the age of 11. Our new purpose-built school gives them a safe haven. We provide minute-by-minute day-time support and a structured learning environment and, despite their challenging personal circumstances, our students make tremendous progress. When they leave us at 16, they are ready to engage with a positive future.
This is why our motto says:
COME WITH A PAST, LEAVE WITH A FUTURE
