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 have written our own bespoke, highly unique curriculum – The Rutherford Curriculum. This curriculum has successfully been implemented in the school and was in use during our Ofsted Outstanding grading in 2015!  The school is part of the Garwood Foundation, a well established and highly regarded local charity. www.garwoodfoundation.org.uk
