Welcome Message

Welcome to the website of our New Special Free School Hatchside School. Hatchside School opened to pupils on Monday 26th April 2021 and joined our other two schools, Newbridge School Lower School and Newbridge School Upper School as part of the Astrum Multi Academy Trust. Hatchside School caters for pupils aged 2-7 years of age with a range of SEND and with a focus on Assessment and Early Intervention. 

We are a highly respected Trust catering for pupils with a range of Severe and Complex Special Educational Needs across the London Borough of Redbridge and beyond. 

We are forward thinking with both our current schools - Newbridge Lower School and Newbridge Upper School rated as outstanding for the past 10 years.  

Our vision is to create a partnership of outstanding Special Schools to support the Special Needs Community in Redbridge and the surrounding area to offer excellent opportunities for pupils and their families.

Hatchside School will increase in size over the next 3 years, until it reaches its capacity of 64 pupils.
