Elmwood & Penrose are schools which teach students who have additional needs.  We are based in Bridgwater, Somerset.  We are all empathetic and have an awareness of the challenges our students face in their lives.  We have re-organised two special schools onto three sites.  We believe that our students need to experience the rights of passage to different buildings as they get older.  Penrose, the primary school, is based in Albert Street, Bridgwater and is a maintained Trust school.  The secondary school, Elmwood, is co-located with Robert Blake Science College on Hamp Avenue, Bridgwater and is a PFI.  The Jean Rees Centre 16-19 provision is based on the campus of Chilton Trinity.
