Welcome to Mayfield School

Welcome to the Mayfield School website.

Mayfield School is a large special school for pupils aged 2-19 years old and it is designated to provide an education for pupils with Severe and Profound learning disabilities and for primary aged children with SEMH (Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs).  There are currently 223 pupils on roll.

To provide for the pupils the school operates on three sites which are 12 miles apart. Mayfield main school in Torquay is the largest and has 153 pupils aged 2-16 who have Severe and Profound learning needs.  The college is for students aged 16-19 years who have Severe or Profound learning needs and currently has 38 young people. This site is situated in Paignton and is called the Mayfield College. The third part of the school is for 30 pupils with SEMH and this site is in Brixham and is known as the Chestnut Centre. We currently have 32 pupil on role at the Chestnut Centre.

The College and the Chestnut Centre are additional provisions that have been developed over the past 2 and 4 years respectively.

We are very proud to belong to our school and believe it is a caring, safe, supportive and fun place to be that has children at the heart of everything it does. We are committed to the rights of our children and young people to receive an appropriate and meaningful education and believe that it is essential to celebrate the smallest steps of achievement. We are fully committed to safeguarding our pupils through policy and practices that are clearly designed to protect them from harm.

I hope you find our site of useful and that it provides you with the information you need.

Yours sincerely
