Grange SEN School

Client: Manchester City Coucil
Architect: Ellis Williams
Cost: £14 million
Completion: 2011
BREEAM: Very Good

This new £14m state of the art SEN school will increase the current roll of pupils aged 4 to 19 from 80 to 150. In addition to the school building, new residential accommodation has also been provided. This offers much needed residential provision for children and young people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families. It provides 10 long term residential places, as well as overnight short break provision for up to 10 children and young people – a first for Manchester.

Other features of the new school include an allotment, a woodland area, sensory rooms, water features, a multi use games area and a fantastic covered external play area. This project has achieved a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating for both buildings.
