Basic information about the school:
The Observatory School is a mixed 8-16 community specialist provision for pupils
with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) difficulties and/or Autistic Spectrum
Disorder (ASD). The school is split over two sites, Leasowe and Vyner. The Leasowe site houses our key stage 2 pupils and the Vyner site is home to the key stage 3 and 4 pupils. 

We are place funded for 160 pupils, but we will admit up to 10% over baseline place
numbers in certain circumstances where agreed with the local authority.
All young people will have been identified as having SEMH or ASC as a primary
need, and have an Education Health Care Plan in place to be considered for a
place at The Observatory School (TOS). Where special provision is being considered
for a young person, the Local Authority will make a referral for a pupil directly to the
school. The Head Teacher and SENCo will work together to consider if the school
can meet the needs of your child/ward.

There is a choice of two SEMH provisions available to male pupils within the Wirral. For
female pupils, The Observatory School is the only available provision.
