Chailey Heritage School, in Sussex, is a charitable special school for children and young adults, aged between 3 and 19, with complex physical disabilities, including visual and hearing impairments, and associated learning difficulties. Some of our pupils have a profound learning disability in addition to other disabilities (PMLD). Please read our Teaching and Learning Statement (which incorporates our SEN Policy). 


Our School Vision is simple and clear: Every young person at Chailey Heritage School will be given every opportunity to make progress towards fulfilment. We will never, ever give up looking for ways to support our young people to make their own choices in life, and to achieve their own desired destinations. 


All of our young people have access to a very high level of clinical and therapeutic input from our NHS colleagues on site. All of our teachers and hands-on staff are highly trained to work with young people with complex needs. 


Chailey Heritage School is part of the Chailey Heritage Foundation which comprises of Chailey Heritage School, Chailey Heritage Residential and Futures@ChaileyHeritage (our provision for young adults) which comprises of Futures Accommodation and the Futures Life Skills Centre.
