Hazel Oak

Hazel Oak School caters for 163 pupils between the ages of 4 to 18 years with a range of moderate learning difficulties and autism. We believe in early intervention to put pupils at every age and stage on the right track toward progress. Throughout the school we focus on Skills for Life, work related learning, Philosophy for Children and deliver the foundation subjects through a challenge based curriculum approach, making learning exciting and relevant to all pupils. We are also a business and enterprise college, planning next and future steps for all pupils.



Forest Oak School

We are a school for pupils with moderate learning difficulties, aged from four to sixteen years old.  The school also has a 6th Form for students aged 16-18 years. In June 2006, we relocated to a brand new building, with excellent facilities, which we share with Merstone School for pupils with severe and complex learning difficulties.  We continue as two separate schools, with some shared specialist facilities.  Sited alongside Smith’s Wood Specialist Sports College, we are working in partnership towards provision of a broader range of flexible learning opportunities, according to individual pupils’ needs, across the campus of the three schools.



Merstone School

Merstone is an all age (2½-19) co-educational Special School located in Solihull where pupils have moderate, severe or profound learning difficulties. Many of our pupils have complex needs including autism, sensory/physical impairment and challenging behaviour. Originally based in Marston Green, Merstone transferred to its new purpose built site in the summer of 2006 and provides excellent facilities for children with Special Educational Needs. Specialist facilities at the school include sensory dark and light rooms, soft play, warm water pool, library, medical room and physiotherapy room.



Reynalds Cross School

​​​Reynalds Cross currently has 103 pupils between the ages of 2 – 19yrs with a wide range of learning difficulties, most of whom are working at below age related expectations and with approximately 50%  of its population on the Autistic Spectrum. In recent years we have worked closely with local colleges, universities and training providers to provide mentoring support when working alongside students at various stages of their careers. We have a dedicated team of staff who are open to sharing their skills, knowledge and understanding to further the development of all.



Dickens Heath School

Dickens Heath Community Primary School is a vibrant, ambitious, fully inclusive school where we encourage and nurture each individual to strive to be the very best that they can be.

Built on the values of trust, respect, honesty, co-operation and positivity, our school vision is to provide a happy, safe, positive environment, which nurtures confidence, motivation, independence and personal success for all pupils.

We believe that every child is an ‘expert’ at something and have high expectations of all members of our school community.
