About Craig y Parc School

Craig y Parc is a wonderfully warm and vibrant community where pupils and young adults come to learn, live and get the most out of life. We are a school for complex, neurological and multi disabilities, such as cerebral palsy. We offer 38 and 52-week placements.

A comprehensive range of specialist services are employed to work closely with pupils, parents and families and in partnership with other carers and professionals, creating an environment where learning, ability, independence and success are central to all that we do.

The school curriculum focuses on individual ability at every stage of the pupil’s development. All aspects of learning are supported by a highly experienced team of Teachers, Learning Support Workers, Key Workers, Speech & Language Therapists and staff trained in MAPA, Physio and Occupational Therapists, IT and Assistive Technology support, Nurses and Social Care support workers.
