Welcome to Portfield School

On behalf of everyone at Portfield School, we’d like to welcome you to our website where you can find out a little more about us and gain an insight into life at Portfield.

We offer a range of flexible day options so you can choose the right fit for you and your family. Specialist facilities such as our therapy pool and sensory room create a bespoke environment and of course our outings and extracurricular activities come together to form a well-rounded experience for your child to benefit from.

Our skilled staff members are dedicated to ensuring your child receives the best possible care and education, with individual personalised plans created for all pupils. We enjoy involving parents and the wider community in the life of the school to create strong links between here and home.

Choosing the right school for your child can sometimes feel difficult and overwhelming – we aim to make the process as simple and straightforward as possible. If you’d like to see the school and experience the happy, calm atmosphere for yourself, please do get in touch to arrange a visit and we’d be very happy to show you around.
