Welcome to Stone Bay School.

Welcome to our website, no matter your connection with us, student, parent, colleague, local authority partner, clinician, therapist, Ofsted partner or prospective employee, we trust you will find out a little more about us here. If there is anything you think we can add to our website to make it even more informative, just let us know.


We had our latest Social Care Ofsted inspection for three days from Tuesday 21st February to Thursday 23rd February. The inspection went extremely well and I am delighted to say we have been judged to be “outstanding” again.

I’d like to thank everyone within the school community for their contribution to this “outstanding” outcome, vindication that we are “getting it right for our students”. Staff, Parents and Governors all play a vital role in this and it is clear to see we can, and do, achieve so much more for our children and young people when we work together.
