Liverpool Progressive School offers high quality person centred education and, where required, residential provision for children and young people from the age of 8 – 19 years. We are co-educational and are the preferred provider for many leading authorities.
We promote our children’s learning via a wide range of experiences and activities including personal, social and health education and the development of leisure, independence and mobility skills.
Liverpool Progressive School is situated in an attractive location in the Liverpool suburb of Walton.
The School is close to many amenities, including Liverpool City Centre, and is easily accessible to surrounding areas with good motorway links.
The building opened in September 2000 as a result of an initiative to provide locally based, easily accessible, high quality learning experiences to children with severe and complex learning difficulties.
The School is staffed with a highly skilled and qualified team of professionals and resourced to offer a wide range of educational, medical and therapeutic resources for children and young adults who have complex needs, including learning difficulties and behaviours that are challenging or inappropriate in community settings. Staff are trained in both diffusion and breakaway techniques.
The School is co-educational and caters for pupils between the ages of 8–19 years.
