Specialist academic and therapeutic provision in a peaceful, rural setting, for young people aged 11-16 with additional social, emotional and mental health needs.

Welcome to our Special Needs Secondary School in Cranborne, Dorset

The Beeches School; where pupils are helped to make progress to realise their potential and ambitions. Taking STEPS, in the right direction towards making healthy choices and independence.

At Aurora Beeches, we believe in giving young people the tools and opportunities to create the lives they want for themselves. With high-quality teaching, an excellent level of individual support and a range of expert-led, integrated therapy, we support students with a range of additional learning needs to create and meet their own goals.


All our students are fully involved in choices around their own programmes, so that whatever their plans are – whether they want to pursue further education, training or employment – they are empowered and supported to create their own futures. Pupils are helped to make progress to realise their potential and ambitions. 

We look forward to welcoming you to Aurora Beeches.

Lydia Roberts, Headteacher, Aurora Beeches.
