Chailey Heritage School is a non-maintained day and residential special school which is also registered as a children's home. On-site clinical support for pupils is provided by Chailey Heritage Clinical Services which is part of the Sussex Community National Health Service (NHS) Trust. We are a registered children's home and have six residential bungalows; some of our pupils stay for occasional respite, some are weekly or fortnightly boarders and some stay with us for 52 weeks. We have young people from around 20 different local authorities. The school caters for complex physical disabilities, including visual and hearing impairments, and associated learning difficulties. All of our young people have access to a very high level of clinical and therapeutic input from our NHS colleagues on site. All of our teachers and hands-on staff are highly trained to work with young people with complex needs. Volunteers may be accepted to work with the pupils.
