Aims & Objectives
Wennington Hall is administered by the Lancashire Education Authority and caters, on a residential or day basis, for the needs of up to 80 boys of secondary age who have difficulties associated with their academic, social, emotional, and/or behavioural development, which, at the time of referral, make mainstream secondary provision inappropriate for them. The school is housed in a Grade II Listed Building set in 17 acres of attractive parkland in the Lune Valley.
