About Our School

Fairfields is a  primary special school taking children between the ages of 3 and 11 with severe or profound learning difficulties, communication and physical difficulties. We also cater for pupils on the autistic spectrum. Some children may also have multi-sensory impairment and complex medical difficulties.

The school is situated in large well maintained grounds close to the centre of Northampton. Its catchment area covers Northampton and the South and West of the County. The school is close to Northampton General Hospital.

It was the best decision we ever made to send our child to Fairfields
