Regency High School prides itself on providing a caring, supportive yet challenging environment for students between 11-19 years with a range of additional needs including moderate, severe and profound learning disabilities, physical and medical needs, and sensory impairments.
We believe in fostering and nurturing the talents of the young people, providing them with a personalised experience.
As such, we work closely with a wide range of professionals, organisations and other educational providers to offer the highest quality education to all of our students.
At Regency High School we make sure that all pupils are supported, educated and have all of their individual needs met to ensure progress. The broad range in pupils abilities to both academically and physically access their learning provides the school with plenty of challenges.
Many of our pupils follow a typical secondary school model, accessing specialist teachers for the majority of subjects.
Included in our classes is a base for pupils with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder/pupils who need a high level of structure and there are currently two classes for pupils with PMLD.

The Developmental Skills Curriculum is designed to meet the needs of students with profound and multiple difficulties (PMLD); it is based around a multi-sensory approach to all topics and activities. The curriculum is personalised for each student based on assessments of individual needs. A range of assessments are used to identify personal targets. These personal targets focus on the following curriculum areas:
• Self Care and Independence
Most skills identified from the Developmental Skills Curriculum will need to be worked on continuously, that is during regular individual sessions and generalised in group sessions.
As most of the pupils will be working from the Developmental Skills Curriculum for the whole of their schooling, work on similar skills will be covered in all classes. However, progression is achieved as far as possible by using different contexts for learning through the key stages:
• Key Stage 3: topic based curriculum, modified from the National Curriculum
• Key Stage 4: key topic areas taken from ASDAN Transition Challenge
• Key Stage 5: OCR Accreditation for Life and Living
