Schools in North Yorkshire

If a child or young person's need cannot be met in a mainstream school or setting with the involvement of the SEND hubs, they may require a special school place. Except in very rare circumstances, special schools take pupils with an education, health and care plan (EHCP).

Special schools

There are seven maintained special schools and three special academies in North Yorkshire. You can find and compare schools near you here. You can also view details of independent schools for students with special educational needs here, including those approved under section 41 of the Children and Families Act.
