Craig y Parc School is a place where pupils come to learn, live and get the most out of life. Situated on the outskirts of Cardiff, we combine a range of education, social activities and residential care for pupils with cerebral palsy and other complex support needs.
We work with pupils to focus on learning, ability and independence. With classroom space for 56 pupils aged between 3-19, the school is both well-equipped and expertly staffed.
There are five main curriculum areas: Foundation, Primary, Secondary, 14-16 and Post-16. Conductive Education, Sensory and Sensory Movement with Communication are all essential parts of every learning activity.
All are supported by highly experienced teachers and learning assistants as well as an on-site team of physical, speech and language, and music therapists; nurses; communication and technology specialists; social care and clinical experts; aroma and hydrotherapists.
