I'm the Headteacher at Ickburgh School, for which I feel very privileged.
Privileged to work with young people whose courage and talents help them to overcome some very significant challenges on their journey to adulthood.
Privileged too, working with colleagues who respond to each young person as an individual, always striving for the best possible outcomes and taking learning from every issue that arises.
We believe Ickburgh School is a place where pupils can find Fulfilment, Belonging and greater Independence. We serve young people aged from 3 to 19 with severe learning difficulties, severe learning difficulties and autism, and profound and multiple learning difficulties.
We look forward to hearing from you

“Ickburgh school has been part of our family for many years and we really couldn’t have done without the generous support of my son’s teachers and all the staff. My son has made significant progress in his communication and personal confidence over the years and I know it is because of hardwork and caring lessons he has been receiving every week at school. My son, his brother and I are grateful for all the years of support and excellent learning provision at Ickburgh school.” - Parent of a secondary student
"I appreciate everything Ickburgh school does to help my son reach his full potential. It is very rewarding to see him happy, enjoying and benefiting from the setting." - Parent of a primary student
“My son has progressed so well over the past year despite lockdown, he can draw now and do other things he couldn’t before. All the support we received from the school over lockdown was amazing. My son loves the home learning the school provides and he has watched the videos on the Ickburgh YouTube channel so often he has memorised the words.” - Parent of a secondary student
"My daughter loves to come to school, and when she walks past to go to church on a Sunday, we struggle to get her to come, as she wants to come to school!" - Parent of a sixth form student
"I think Ickburgh is an amazing and unique school which has helped our daughter enormously. I am very grateful to all the dedicated people in her class who work so hard to make her time productive and full of fun. She comes home covered in glitter, pasta and smelling of various scents and it is obvious that she has been learning and having a lot of fun at the same time." - Parent of a sixth form student
