BISHOPSWOOD SCHOOL is a successful, family orientated and rapidly growing special school that provides specialist education for children aged 2-16 years with severe or profound learning difficulties, including those with complex needs and/or ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder).  
Bishopswood has an inclusive ethos and benefits from being co-located with mainstream schools on 3 sites. 
Our catchment area serves the towns and surrounding villages of South East Oxfordshire including Benson, Cholsey, Chalgrove, Goring, Henley on Thames, Sonning Common, Wallingford, Watlington and Woodcote. We also receive pupils from neighbouring authorities such as Reading, Wokingham, Buckinghamshire and Windsor and Maidenhead.



Bishopswood School is involved in a project with a special school called Zespol in Poland.  To find out more, please click below:

Pupils and staff from Zespol Special School in Poland came to visit us recently.

They came into some of the classes in the primary and secondary department and they came bearing gifts - gingerbread cookies. They joined in with a variety of maths lessons such as Numicon, making 3D Christmas decorations, playing the piano and making vegan porridge. Some of them also came with us to Sonning Common's Christingle Service and were given Christingles, as were our pupils, to take home.

They joined in with our Christmas Fayre where they enjoyed taste testing marmite and English mustard from the gift packs we gave them. Oddly, not many of them liked the marmite!  They definitely preferred trying out English scones and ginger cake in the tea room and they loved the teddies with the British flag on his tummy.

Tweedy the Clown from Gifford's circus visited the school much to the huge enjoyment of staff and pupils.
