Welcome to our Special Needs School in Wilmslow, Cheshire

A safe place to learn and grow where uniqueness is nurtured and aspirational futures are created. 

Welcome from the Head of School

At Aurora Summerfields School we aim to create an imaginative, flexible and aspirational curriculum which enables our students to succeed and mature into happy, healthy, resilient learners. We understand that many of our students may have experienced challenges in their journey through education, and our staff are not only highly skilled, but also empathetic to individual needs.

I am proud to be part of a school that values diversity, recognises unique skills, interests and support strategies and enables each pupil to achieve their full potential.

Kirsty Jockel, Head of School, Aurora Summerfields 


Welcome from the Principal

At Aurora Summerfields School we work closely with our sister school, Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Aurora Hanley, and we are linked together closely through experience, ethos, staffing and vision.

We understand how much our young people need to feel accepted, understood, listened to and supported to achieve life-long learning. To be prepared, not just academically, but socially and emotionally for the challenges that life brings.

Tracy Whitehurst, Principal, Aurora Summerfields and Aurora Hanley
