We are a special school with provision for students aged 11 – 19 with learning difficulties and complex needs including those with profound and multiple learning difficulties. All students have statements of special needs.
Seven Hills School is an inspirational community, which nurtures talents, shares learning and celebrates life. Students are challenged to achieve their full potential.
A public notice has been published today (13/11/2014) in the Sheffield Telegraph newspaper which states that Seven Hills school is proposing to consult with interested parties to become part of a Trust of special schools. This notice is inaccurate as Seven Hills are not part of this round of consultation.
The school may consider options in the future for working more cooperatively and closely with other special schools. When we are ready to do this we will open up a consultation and ask parents and carers for their opinions and ideas.
However we are not part of the current consultation and you do not need to respond in any way to the notice in the newspaper.
If you have any questions, queries or worries please feel free to get in contact with school.

Seven Hills students are supported and inspired to develop:
- Courage to stand up for what is right
- Self esteem to follow their dreams
- Determination to keep going even when faced with challenges
- Joyfulness to find the good in the world around them
- Open-mindedness to value differences and to explore possibilities
- Honesty to share their thoughts
- Friendliness to develop positive relationships
- Staff put no limits on learning and build powerful relationships with all students to foster learning and development.
Each student is treated as a unique individual with talents and gifts to be developed, shared and celebrated.
Staff and students learn with and from each other.
Teaching promotes curiosity and enthusiasm, encourages independence and develops confidence for life beyond school.
The school is organized into phases. Phase 1 includes students in year 7 & 8, Phase 2 students in Years 9, 10 &11 and Phase 3 students in Years 12 & 13. Students in Phase 3 are carefully prepared for transition to college and work placements and may stay for 1, 2 or 3 years.
The curriculum is structured around the Early Years Foundation Stage programmes but at an age appropriate level. There is a very wide variety of learning opportunities in the new purpose built school all encouraging active learning and independence.
As a co-located school the provision is extended so that students benefit from excellent social integration with All Saints Catholic High School. There are also opportunities for students from both communities to experience learning activities in each other's school as appropriate.
