Mapledown School

Head's welcome


Welcome to our website. We hope you will find everything you need to know about us and find some useful links to other websites and organisations too.

Welcome to Mapledown

Mapledown School is Barnet’s only secondary school for students with Severe and Profound Learning Disabilities (including Autism) and we have spaces for up to eighty five students organised into eleven classes in three distinct ‘Learning Zones’. All students have an Educational Health Care Plan or are admitted on an assessment basis. We have developed strong partnerships with families and carers and will always place the needs of students at the heart of all we do.

Our staffs are creative and hardworking and the school holds numerous awards for excellence. Our last Ofsted inspection (July 2018) rated the school as 'good' overall.

I hope you can gain a sense of our work and achievements looking through this website. Visitors to the school are always welcome.

Our school describes itself as a ‘learning organisation’. This means that we are constantly seeking ways to improve and grow and we also recognise that great ideas come from many, and often surprising, places. We are a team and together we can make a difference.
