About Us

Rutherford School is a specialist independent school for pupils with Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities aged 3-19. Our aim is to provide inclusive education to learners whose very special needs are compounded by a high degree of dependency. The school’s holistic approach facilitates learning that is supported and managed by a specialist range of therapies which address physical disabilities, sensory impairments and complex medical needs. We provide the highly unique Profound Education Curriculum®. We are one of only two schools in Britain who uses the curriculum in its totality, the other being The Profound School, Tadworth. In Jan 2012 the school received an Outstanding Ofsted inspection. The school is part of the Garwood Foundation, a well established and highly regarded local charity. www.garwoodfoundation.org.uk
