The school was built in 2013. It has an extensive range of modern facilities to meet the needs of the pupils. These include specialist teaching areas, hydrotherapy pool, sensory rooms and indoor/outdoor play provision. There are ceiling hoists in all classrooms, within the pool areas and in each specialist room. There are also several meeting / training rooms to provide professionals and families with comfortable surroundings. The building is co-located with the Ormiston Sir Stanley Matthews Academy which provides good links with mainstream pupils and colleagues.
