About Phoenix

The Phoenix School is situated within a very pleasant campus within the township of Orton Goldhay, which lies five miles from the centre of Peterborough. Please click here to see our video.

It is very close to all local amenities including shopping and medical centre, primary and secondary schools and is readily accessible by road. Following full consultation through an extensive Local Authority Special Schools Review the Phoenix School was established in September 2004 through the merger of two established special schools within the city of Peterborough. The school comprises of 3 single storey buildings with excellent teaching and learning resources. The Phoenix School was the result of an extensive refurbishment and the development of new buildings and facilities all of a very high standard.
