Welcome to our Special Needs Secondary School in Wakefield.

At Aurora Ivy Lane School we believe that learning opportunities occur throughout the day in all settings and in a unique way for each young person. The principal aim of Aurora Ivy Lane School is to enable each young person to develop independence through learning in a school and a community environment that offers warmth, security and consistency.

A purposeful and calm atmosphere is encouraged through the professional approach adopted by all staff. Trust and a positive rapport between the young people we support and the staff underpin the ethos of the school. We look forward to working with you and your child to ensure a holistic and supportive environment helps your child flourish and develop in all aspects of life.

Our mission is to enhance the lives of the young people entrusted to our services by focusing on their specific needs, capabilities and aspirations.
