Our School

Springside School opened in September 2007 and is a proud part of Springside with Hamer Learning Community. We cater for learners with complex medical and profound learning needs and difficulties, including autism. We currently teach 128 learners within 13 classes.

Our school is co-located with Hamer Primary School and Hamer Sure Start Children’s Centre. Following the closure of High Birch, Birtle View, Alderman Kay, Innes, and Rydings special schools, staff and primary aged learners from each school amalgamated into the new ‘state of the art’ purpose built environment, forming Springside Special School.

The original building on the site, home to Hamer Community Primary School, was in need of a complete refurbishment. The decision was taken therefore, to build a completely new school to house both Springside and Hamer.

If you wish to contact the school, please telephone 01706 764451 and a member of our office team will direct you to the most appropriate person to handle your call.
