Headteacher of Stone Bay School: Billy McInally
I am delighted to welcome you to the Stone Bay School website. I do hope you will find the information here both informative and useful.
We believe that every student is entitled to the very best possible education, delivered in an environment that is both safe and, conducive to learning. At Stone Bay we work tirelessly to ensure we get this just right for all our students.
We specialise in providing both day and residential education for pupils aged 11 to 19 years who have profound, severe and complex additional needs, all come with a diagnosed autistic spectrum disorder, most with additional comorbidities. All have an Education Health & Care plan or for an ever decreasing minority, a statement of special educational need.
Stone Bay School is often described as unique. The school is situated on Stone Bay in Broadstairs, Kent. We are housed in a beautiful Victorian building that, over time, has been adapted and modified to meet the needs of our children and young people. We benefit from stunning views across the English Channel and the North Sea, indeed the local environment provides many unique and enjoyable learning opportunities for our students.
It is impossible to do full justice to our school in a short statement or indeed on a website and I would encourage you to make a personal visit to see us for yourself, at that time I would be delighted to meet you. If you feel you need any more information please don’t hesitate to call and we will answer any of your queries.
