Hazel Oak, Forest Oak, Reynalds Cross & Merstone Schools with Victoria Park Academy
What is HOSTA?
Hazel Oak School was designated a Teaching School in September 2015 as part of Cohort 7. The school then joined forces with 3 local special schools including Merstone, Forest Oak, Reynalds Cross and also Victoria Park Academy, a mainstream primary school.
We are experts in the special needs sector of education with many years of experience supporting a broad and burgeoning range of additional and complex needs in young people. As outstanding practitioners in our field we are able to provide specialist CPD and support to schools that wish to enhance their SEN provision or seek to improve staff skills and training.
HOSTA has developed an excellent track record of initial teacher training through a School Direct programme linked to Wolverhampton University, growing SEN expertise for the future. We can also offer outreach support as well as in house sessions and opportunities to share best practice, developing pupils, staff and leaders for a more inclusive future.
HOSTA is a small and friendly alliance capable of offering bespoke support in the changing educational landscape. We are always keen to make new links and new partners are always welcome. HOSTA is here to help.
