About Us

Dysart is a provision for pupils who have a range of severe and complex learning disabilities, both from within the Royal Borough of Kingston and beyond.  The school is part of the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust.

This website aims to give a broad picture of what Dysart is all about and to show the ‘life’ of the school. At Dysart we strive to promote equality of opportunity by maximising access and by supporting every young person to develop independence and advocacy skills, self-esteem, confidence and respect for others.

Please contact us for more detailed information or for further explanation of any aspect of the school and its work.

You are rightly proud of your work around pupil wellbeing, and ensuring pupils are ready for learning.  This has enabled you to establish a calm and purposeful learning environment for pupils with considerable needs.
