• The Valley School


The Valley School, Stevenage, Hertfordshire

The Valley School is a secondary school for pupils aged 11-16 years old with Special Educational Needs (SEN). It is based in Stevenage, Hertfordshire.

All of the pupils have learning difficulties with a large majority of pupils also having autism, and subsequent communication, or language needs.

In addition to the well-equipped classrooms, the school has a large amount of outdoor equipment, and sensory spaces.

The Valley school is home to lots of animals, such as chickens, snakes and two school dogs. The pupils are encouraged to take an active role in caring for and looking after the school pets.

I, however was less keen when it came to close up photography with a snake!

My brief was to photograph the facilities, classrooms, pupils and staff. The images would be used for their new website & subsequent marketing.

Most importantly, the school is passionate about the individual needs of each of its pupils. I therefore wanted to capture this within the photos.

The Valley School is a very special school, providing significant care and the ability to learn in safe environment for its pupils. it was a joy to photograph.

For security and safeguarding, only a selection images from the session are shown here. However if you wish view a wider selection of images please visit their website
