Head’s welcome

Marshfields School is a 175-place special provision for students aged 10 – 19 with a wide range of Learning Difficulties. We are a hub school for Peterborough, providing support, training and short-term school placements to Year 5 and year 6 students with Learning Difficulties. Students come from all over Peterborough, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire to access our inclusive and high-quality educational provision.

We ensure Marshfields School meets the complex needs of these students. We offer a rich curriculum which develops students and prepares them for the world of work, balanced against a wide range of extra-curricular trips, visits and opportunities to encourage a love of learning. Our students have excellent attendance and enjoy coming to school.

Our house system embodies our commitment to offering more than just the curriculum. Our houses are called Discovery, Endeavour, Invention and Well-being and through this house system, students and staff work together in a spirit of friendly competition to celebrate success in all areas of school life.

As a small school, we get to know every one of our students individually. This allows us to develop and support them throughout the school career because we never rest on our laurels, instead adapting the curriculum, resources and opportunities as the need arises.

We warmly welcome visits to the school to show you our ethos in action, subject to Covid-19 risk assessment.
