Aspley Special School

Aspley Special School provides educational programs for around 100 students aged between 11 and 18 years of age with intellectual impairment and additional disability. About forty-five percent of students have an additional disability (autism spectrum disorder, physical, vision and/or hearing impairments) with twenty percent having multiple impairments.  As a result, our students require the highest level of support and adjustments to access the curriculum. To provide this our school has in excess of 60 staff comprising teachers, teacher aides, therapists, specialists, office staff, chaplain and ancillary team members.
Aspley Special School is a leader in the provision of senior schooling programs for students with disability.  This reputation has been built on our famous recycling and hospitality programs. In recent years it is also a result of our focus on the Australian Curriculum, innovative model of service delivery and expansion of our program offerings.  We have been recognised with numerous educational and community awards including DET’s highest accolade, a Showcase Award (Senior Schooling).
Each student has an Individual Curriculum Plan (ICP) or Senior Education and Training (SET) plan that identifies priority learning goals which are negotiated by the staff, in consultation with parents, caregivers and a range of people from external agencies as appropriate.  In the Senior School (year 10-12 equivalent) students also have a student driven, aspirational Planning Alternate Tomorrows with Hope (PATH) plan.  All aspects of each student’s plans are focused on developing the skills required for post-school life.
Our school motto is ‘Learning for Life’ and underpins all we do at Aspley.
