Wilson School is a state school which welcomes students with a wide range of disabilities and special learning needs. Our base school in Takapuna is an award winning purpose built school located in the grounds of the Wilson Centre. We operate several programmes to meet the specific needs of groups of students. We employ Teachers, Teacher Aides, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Speech Language Therapists and Music Therapists to support Wilson School students in their learning opportunities. When necessary we also engage the services of a psychologist.
Approximately half of our students receive their education at Base School at the Wilson centre. Our other students attend a number of satellite classes located in mainstream schools in our local area.
