"...he is able to flourish in an environment which understands and cares about him and one that is proud of him and his achievements too. It is also an environment which recognises him as an individual with an individual difficulty in life and it continually works with us to overcome this difficulty, whilst allowing him every opportunity available to be himself.

"Always try to see the child first rather than the disability."

"We feel since our son has attended Market Field that there has been constant advice and help for the whole family and a vast improvement in our child’s education."

"Very rarely do you come across a place of learning where the commitment of the staff to the children is always total and absolute; where learning is constructive but also fun. A positive buzz seems to flow through the school making it an excellent environment to bring out the best in each of our children, helping them to achieve their full potential whatever that might be. The place is Market Field School - very much a "special" school."
