Northern House School (Wokingham) is a Wokingham maintained special school, which serves as a regional resource.  Our students come from a number of areas, including Wokingham.  Students may come to the school with considerable experience of failure and consequent low self-esteem.  As a result they may present challenging behaviour or exhibit inappropriate attempts at social interaction.  Such students benefit from clear boundaries and a structured environment.

  

We also have a school council which allows students to take part in decisions concerning the management of the school.  Everybody who wants to take part will be given an opportunity at some time during their school career.
