Principal’s Message

It is a pleasure to welcome you to Swiss Cottage School, Development and Research Centre, a 2-19 special needs school in the London Borough of Camden. We are committed to providing the best education for our students, passionate about providing them with meaningful learning experiences which promote their development. We focus on holistic development through a flexible curriculum which emphasises ‘Deep Learning’ by responding to each student’s point of learning. There is a range of expertise throughout this school, from our highly skilled teachers and teaching assistants to a range of teams and leaders. Together, we ensure every child’s needs are met .  Our teachers lead their class team through shared goals which are informed by parents, families, NHS Therapists, and the Multi-agency Support Team. We place this vision at the heart of an integrated provision.

We embrace a shared responsibility for the wider population of children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND). As a designated Teaching School, we work collaboratively with a network of schools and organisations to engage with research and innovation which will enhance approaches to SEND.  At the centre of this is our commitment to meaningful partnership with our parents, peers, and professional partners. We look forward to welcoming you to our provision.

Best wishes,

Vijita Patel
