Welcome from the Head Teacher, Diane Scott


On behalf of the pupils, staff and governors of Thomas Bewick School I would like to welcome you to our website.  We want our website to give you a flavour of life at our wonderful school and to provide you with the information that you need.

We aim to support all of our pupils to achieve and develop in all aspects of their life through our exciting and challenging curriculum.  Our motto is ‘Growth through understanding’ and we firmly believe that knowing each pupil as an individual is a vital element in supporting their growth.  We could not do this without the excellent support and joint working with families and other professionals.

All of our pupils have an autism diagnosis and an Education Health Care Plan, so vital to their growth is our autism specific environment and our dedicated team of staff who are trained in autism specific strategies.

Our school is a community where we want everyone to feel safe and secure, valued and respected and where we have a shared commitment to providing the best learning opportunities possible. We have the highest expectations and aspirations for all of our learners and continually seek to develop to ensure that these are realised.  We are extremely proud of all of our pupils’ achievements and their readiness to move on and take their next steps in life when they leave Thomas Bewick.

Please take time to browse and enjoy our website.  Do not hesitate to contact school if you need any further information.
