Service description:
Northgate is a secondary special school for pupils with Multiple Learning Difficulties (MLD), Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD), Physical Disabilities (PD), Sensory Impairments (SI) and Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) who have an EHC plan or statement for Special Educational Need. Our intention is to enable our pupils to develop their full potential before moving on from school to be successful members of adult society.

Our older pupil’s access links with local colleges at Northampton, Daventry and Moulton as well as work related learning opportunities within the local environment.

The school aims to develop all pupils’ full potential through access to a broad based curriculum in line with national guidelines with appropriate modification and differentiation.

The main school site has specialist rooms for the delivery of Science, ICT, Food Technology, Resistant Material Technology, Art, PE/Sports and Performing Arts.

Northgate Post-16 units, The Bee Hive and Sweet Bee, are separate learning environments for young people with learning difficulties. The Bee Hive is on a separate site and is a 6th form education provision alongside a community business and operates a café, catering kitchen, retail outlets and well-being centre.

The Sweet Bee is an independent shop based in a local shopping area that sells sweets and sweet based gifts. It offers work experience places to young people following the retail vocational pathway and opportunities to develop entrepreneurial skills.
