Childwall Abbey School is a Local Authority specialist secondary school for pupils with Complex Learning Difficulties, aged 11-19.  We are located in a beautiful part of the south of Liverpool and have thriving links with our local community.  Our aim is to provide quality education, for pupils who have a wide variety of learning difficulties, often including Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

At Childwall Abbey, we know that all our pupils can achieve, if they are able to experience a curriculum, learning environment and support, which meets their individual needs.

Our Mission Statement underpins all our practice in the daily life of our school.

We aim to be:

“A calm, safe and welcoming place in which to work and learn.
A place where everyone supports each other to achieve.
A place we enjoy coming to each day.”

At Childwall Abbey, we understand the importance of working closely with parents, carers, governors and many other agencies, to develop independence and self-esteem in all our pupils. Pupils are encouraged to develop skills for adult life, to achieve nationally accredited certification, to have opportunities to learn outside the classroom and to become respectful, active and positive contributors to the wider community.

I hope you find our website useful. Please contact school if you require any further help or information.
