About Us

The Collett - Who We Are

The Collett is a Special Educational Needs School for children with Learning Disabilities (LD) and Complex Needs including Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Speech and Language Communication Needs (SLCN) and Moderate Learning Disabilities (MLD). We are looking to be re-designated as a 'Complex Needs School', which would recognise the increasing complexity of needs the children placed in our school. Our pupils are aged between 4 and 16 years.

We are situated in Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire. Our catchment area is wide and includes highly affluent areas and deprived communities. A higher than average proportion of our pupils access free school meals. Every child accessing the school has an Education Health Care Plan and is working at or around the second percentile.

We are 'proudly different' in what we provide as an education setting and are a school in transition. Our relationships with partnerships in business, industry, private, public and voluntary sectors continues to influence and expand what we can offer for our young people in school and beyond school leaving age. The Collett works collaboratively with other schools, including those in DSPL8 area, our Federation and Hertfordshire in order to support our pupils and expand our skills, knowledge and provision.
