Solent Special Education Trust

From 1st September 2017 Great Oaks School became part of the Solent Special Education Trust (SSET).

The Solent Special Education Trust is a newly formed Multi-Academy Trust in Southampton currently comprising Rosewood Free School  for pupils aged 2- 25 years with profound and multiple learning difficulties and Great Oaks School a secondary special school for young people with a wide range of learning difficulties.

The Trust currently supports the two schools on five site across the City catering for over 260 children and young people and employing over 160 staff. Pupils come to the schools from across Southampton and parts of Hampshire.  SSET are currently preparing a bid for a new Free Special School in Southampton to meet the increased demand for places in our schools.

The schools in the Trust are keen to retain their individual identity whilst finding increasing opportunities to collaborate for the benefit of our communities. The Trust is supported by active and skilled Members, Trustees and Governors.

Our schools strive for innovative, creative, child centred and relevant approaches to learning. We aim to support our communities through honesty, integrity and respectfulness. We are places of safety for young people that foster a climate of nurture and wellbeing.
