We have a good reputation and enjoy strong relationships in the local community. we welcome diversity in culture, religion and ability, and we value the contribution that every child and young person makes to our school.
In 2007 the Department for Children, Schools and Families awarded us specialist status as a Sports College with information communication technology (ICT). Not only is this based on our equipment and facilities, but I believe it reflects our school’s commitment to excellence and providing the best education possible.
Learning at Victoria
We provide a broad and balanced curriculum, which is accessible to all our students and provides smooth progression an continuity from the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) through to post-16.
For more information on the curriculum, please read our prospectus.
Living at Victoria
Victoria has flexible residential facilities for students. We can acommodate weekly, fortnightly, termly and 52-week boarders. We re-registered as a Children’s home in 2007.
Sports at Victoria
Sport is a huge part of life at Victoria. We were recognised as a specialist sports college in September 2007 and in 2009 OFSTED called our sports outstanding. Physical education and sport have long been a strength of our school. We believe that disability should be no barrier to sport, whether for fun or at the highest levels of competition. For this reason, every student is encouraged to get involved in a whole range of sports and activities, all individually tailored.
Victoria has fantastic sports facilities that include a large sports hall, a fitness room, soft play area and swimming pool. We have plans to further develop these facilities in the coming years.After school and at weekends, we offer an extensive programme of sports which include: athletics, table cricket, dance, boccia, hockey, and both ambulant and wheelchair football.As London prepares to host the Paralympics in 2012, there is real excitement among staff and students alike. Our dream is to see students past and present competing as part of Team GB. In a society which often pities or patronises disabled people, having medal winners and record breakers within our school raises everyone’s confidence and aspirations.
We’re proud to be rated ‘Outstanding’ in all areas for our most recent Ofsted inspection (June 2015). View the report (PDF) here.
