Torfield School caters for children and young people who have a range of Special Educational Needs (SEN).

Torfield is designated by the local authority as a special school for pupils with autism and associated Communication and Language Difficulties (ACLD). In practice this means a large number of our children have ASD. However a significant number of pupils also have speech, language and communication difficulties and other complex SEN.
