Eresby Special School

Eresby Special School maintains a caring and happy atmosphere where pupils can feel safe and are encouraged to achieve their personal best. Enabling them to leave school as confident, happy and independent as possible.


Eresby Enrichment & Partnerships page

At Eresby we provide links with local mainstream schools and other services within the community.

We believe it is very important to extend learning outside of the classroom and ensure our pupils feel a valued member of the wider community. We also feel that these links will help benefit pupils' individual needs and help them to gain independence.

As the School is now a member of the David Ross Education Trust, we now have strong links with the other academies within the trust, in particular the ones also situated in the Lincolnshire area. Our academy status strengthens the opportunities available to all of our pupils by providing us with more links and partnerships. For more information about the trust visit 

Community Programs

Eresby School is very much a part of the local community.

Community Programmes

We champion community awareness amongst our pupils, whether it be local, national or global.

Eresby possesses strong partnerships with local primary and secondary schools, as well as taking part in numerous community events, and support global projects.

All of these partnerships and links help pupils to strengthen their community and cultural awareness.

Work experience

All students for whom it is appropriate in key stages 4 and 5 have the opportunity to take part in external work experience placements once a year. Students work in the local community supported by a member of staff from school for a week’s placement each year from year 10 -14. This gives them a valuable experience of the world of work and a chance to develop the social skills necessary.

Work Taster week

Students in class 7 take part in a work taster week, where they visit a different work setting each day for a week. This gives them the opportunity to see and experience a variety of jobs that people do.

Mini enterprise

Students in class 8 (post 16), run mini enterprise activities which enables the students to develop their life and social skills, whilst also providing community links.


Eresby School has very strong links with Spilsby and is supported by businesses and the local community. We use the town to develop many skills for our students, from shopping for cooking resources to visiting the local churches and holding events in them.
