Introducing Medway Green School

Medway Green is a school for children aged between 5 and 14 who have a range of special educational needs.

Located in the village of Wouldham in Kent, our site has recently benefited from significant development, with our traditional Victorian school house and modern classroom block having been refurbished to the highest specifications. Everything about our school – from the high quality design of our environment to the professionalism and passion of our team – is about putting the needs of our students first and giving them the very best start in life.

 

Our facilities and resources

Although parts of our site date back to the 19th century, our recent renovation has equipped us with superb, high-specification buildings equipped for modern day teaching.

Our students come to us with a wide range of social, emotional and mental health needs, including autistic spectrum conditions, and our environment has been carefully designed to meet their individual learning requirements while ensuring they also feel safe, secure and cared for.

Each child is different so we offer a variety of learning environments, from modern, high specification classrooms through to spaces dedicated to one-to-one interaction, specially designed therapy spaces, and sensory areas that can help students feel calm and safe.

Our superb indoor facilities are complemented by plenty of outdoor space, giving our students the opportunity to learn, discover and explore in the open air. Outdoor learning opportunities form part of our curriculum, and our school enables them to take place in spaces designed specifically for this purpose.
