About Us

Empowering Success Through Holistic and Individualised Learning

ALP Leicester is an Independent Special Needs School catering for learners aged between 6 and 19. Our school is Ofsted registered and caters for 35 young people who have struggled in mainstream education due to their special educational needs. 

Our unique selling point is that we offer small classes or one to one learning where the curriculum is tailored to the needs of the individual. We also recognise the importance of building up routines, relationships, respect and trust in order to achieve successful teaching and learning. 

ALP Leicester is on the same site as the Cedars Academy in Birstall, in what was previously known as Stonehill School. Our school is thriving with unique opportunities for young people. Primary and secondary/post 16  have their own designated space. However, both are able to access the schools facilities which include a construction workshop, two libraries, a large garden, playing field, forest school, a music studio, hairdressing suite, art studio,individual classrooms and group rooms. The school benefits from a range of professionals on its staff team including a Careers officer, Speech and Language therapist, Dyslexia specialist and Counsellor. 

ALP Leicester ensures that all learners work towards a Foundation Learning Curriculum. This ensures that each individualised timetable includes as a minimum core skills in English, maths and ICT, Vocational Learning and Personal and Social development.
