"Building Resilience Not Reliance" An inclusive community committed to excellence in personalised learning and well being

welcome to our school


Welcome to the Ganton School website; our special school community is a vibrant and energetic collaboration between pupils, staff and families which embraces other community partners and seeks to improve outcomes for all those affected by learning difficulties and disabilities.

It is a place where everybody shines and, as Headteacher, I am delighted to be able to share with you information about our school, our pupils and our activities in the hope that you will celebrate, with us, the special achievements of our community members.

Ganton School is committed to safeguarding and protecting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

    Dream to Play

    The primary children have had enough of their drab playground! We have been receiving kind donations from a range of charitable trusts and generous individuals as well as raising our own funds by making and baking and organising crafty raffles and stalls. So far we have £65,000 of the money we need and there is about £50,000 to go to make our dreams come true. The children want to swing and bounce, spin and climb, chase and imagine. They can’t do this in the current bleak concrete space. Let’s have a final push and make this dream come true in 2018. If you have any ideas or can put us in touch with people who might help us please contact Fiona Taylor at the school.

    Tell The World

    As the amazing City of Culture 2017 draws to a close Ganton School would like to thank all the fantastic artists and creative teams that have worked with our pupils this year. We have had the great pleasure of taking part in drama of the highest quality with Brocolilly Theatre (now known as The Herd); our most disabled pupils were enchanted by Home at Hull Truck Theatre and many pupils have visited the quirky installations such as Voice Park. Visiting artists have included Land of Green Ginger, Northern Ballet, Art in the Park, Liz Dees working for Colours of Freedom and the 16,000 Clay Bricks project. There really has been something for everyone and we have all thoroughly enjoyed being inspired to try new things, discover new talents and tell the world how amazing we are. Wired Differently attracted world wide interest and we thank James Mulkeen for his superb photo record.
