About SSET

Individual schools with a shared focus on transforming lives through educational excellence

Solent Special Education Trust is a newly formed Multi-Academy Trust in Southampton currently comprising Rosewood Free School for pupils aged 2- 25 years with profound and multiple learning difficulties and Great Oaks School a secondary special school for young people with a wide range of learning difficulties.

The Trust currently supports two schools on five site across the City catering for over 260 children and young people and employing over 160 staff. Pupils come to the schools from across Southampton and parts of Hampshire. SSET are currently preparing a bid for a new Free Special School in Southampton to meet the increased demand for places in our schools.

The schools in the Trust are keen to retain their individual identity whilst finding increasing opportunities to collaborate for the benefit of our communities. The Trust is supported by active and skilled Members, Trustees and Governors.

Our schools strive for innovative, creative, child centred and relevant approaches to learning. We aim to support our communities through honesty, integrity and respectfulness. We are places of safety for young people that foster a climate of nurture and wellbeing.

Unfortunately there is an issue with Rosewood Free School’s website which is currently down. The host to our web domain is working on this issue and we believe there has been an attack on their host suppliers. We will update any more information we know here.
