Welcome from the Headteacher
WHERE EXCELLENCE MEETS OPPORTUNITY
Hello and welcome to our school. Nexus is an ambitious special school for children and young people with profound, severe and complex needs, many of whom are on the Autistic Spectrum. Nexus is the district special school for Tonbridge and Malling and when full our Nexus main site will accommodate 186 pupils, with the satellite provision at Wouldham having places for a further 48 pupils.
In September 2017, pupils and staff were lucky enough to move into an outstanding multimillion pound purpose built building in Tonbridge. This unique learning environment will have a truly remarkable and positive impact upon our children’s education for generations to come.
Our school building is a unique and genuine reflection of our core values. As a school community we considered what sets us apart. ‘Inspiring’, ‘understanding’, ‘brave’, ‘enthusiastic’, ‘vibrant’, and ‘committed’ are just some of the words that define and guide our daily interaction with the children.
At Nexus we have high expectations for all of our pupils, striving to ensure that they all achieve their maximum potential; celebrating difference and encouraging curiosity and creativity. Our committed staff team work hard to ensure that their individual needs, interests and abilities are met and that they become resilient individuals able to make positive life choices.
Learning, enjoyment and engagement are now supported by remarkable facilities, which includes bespoke teaching environments, a dance and drama room, sports hall, play areas, a rebound therapy room and an exceptionally well equipped therapeutic area. It’s a game changing development in the provision of SEN education in Kent.
Thank you for visiting our website I hope you enjoy your virtual tour around Nexus. We create a happy learning environment where “Excellence meets opportunity” and this encapsulates the type of learning we promote within our community. I hope that the website captures the spirit of Nexus and provides you with useful information but I would urge you to come and visit us to experience for yourself the quality of education given to all of our children and the unique atmosphere of our school.
