Ivy Lane School in Wakefield is Hesley Group's new specialist school which supports children and young people who have a learning disability, autism and complex needs, including behaviours that challenge. We offer child-centred education and support, including a full range of Therapeutic Services based on site, for 24 young people aged 11 to 19 in an environment that complements their individual needs, capabilities and aspirations whilst allowing them the opportunity to progress and reach their full potential.

Located on the outskirts of Wakefield city centre, Ivy Lane School opens up a range of community learning opportunities for all of its young people. Ivy Lane School has a range of different learning environments, classrooms and well equipped learning spaces to complement the wide variety of available activities and to create positive learning opportunities. Within the school’s grounds we have our own ICT suite, library, sports hall, outdoor gym, sensory rooms, arts and crafts workshop, outdoor playground, media room, dining room and learning intervention rooms. Hesley Group also have established excellent relationships with local sensory facilities, working farms, pet rescue centres, soft play centres, gyms and leisure centres.
