Welcome to our Special Needs Secondary School in St Ives, Cambridgeshire.

Fairway is a warm and welcoming school which places student wellbeing and safety at the heart of our provision. Our building is a converted golf pavilion and we have adopted our vision of ‘Driving Futures Together’ from that sporting sentiment.

This means we want to give our students the drive and ambition to succeed and become the best version of themselves in:

  • their education,
  • their employment
  • their independence in adulthood.

We realise this is a collaborative process and, that by working together, we will raise students’ aspirations and achievements.

We have a highly skilled and specialist teaching, support and therapeutic team working with each young person to ensure their needs are fully met and that every achievement takes them closer to their potential in all aspects of their lives; educationally, socially and emotionally.
