Sir Peter Hall School
The school was identified as 1 of 4 new dedicated Special Educational Needs (SEN) facilities within Suffolk County Council’s Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) programme. Our team were proud to provide Suffolk with its first SEMH school, Sir Bobby Robson School, and looked to use the experience and knowledge gained from this project to create another successful SEMH school. Sir Bobby Robson School was recognised in the 2021 SPACES and CIAT – AT Awards.
The new school increases SEN capacity in the county, reducing the need for costly placements outside of Suffolk. Pupils and parents are delighted that they have this fantastic facility close to where they live.
Following an informal consultation, a decision was made to name the new school after theatre, opera, and film director, Sir Peter Hall. Sir Peter was born in Bury St Edmunds and founded the Royal Shakespeare Company.
