Outreach and Inclusion


Melland High School is an ‘outstanding’ special school in Gorton. Our pupils have a range of significant difficulties and complex learning needs. The outreach team from Melland HS is led by two experienced Specialist Leaders of Education and fully supported by the whole school team.

 The purpose of our service is to provide outreach support to mainstream high schools to support the inclusion of pupils with cognition and learning difficulties up to L2 (KS3) and L3 (KS4).
