About Our School

Bleasdale School is an Outstanding school in the centre of the picturesque village of Silverdale in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the day school on one side of the road, the residential building on the other. 

Just 10 minutes drive from Junction 35 of the M6 motorway with good public transport links.

The School caters for pupils 2 to 19 years with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD), some with associated complex needs, ASD (Autism) and challenging behaviours.  

We are a specialist day school which also offers optional residential provision.

The school follows Lancashire’s holiday pattern, opening 38 weeks a year

For our residential pupils we offer weekly boarding patterns across the 38 weeks with a Short Break option of 2 weeks in the Summer holiday for any of our pupils, day or residential (at a subsidised cost.).  We also remain open after school on alternate Fridays until 3.30 pm on Saturdays and all pupils are offered the chance to stay overnight and enjoy the activities on offer on a rota basis.

All our children are entitled to County transport provision.
