Welcome to Southport Special School

It is  our pleasure to welcome you to the Southport Special School website.
Southport Special School was established in 1970 and is one of the largest special schools in Queensland. Our school is  co-educational and provides an educational service for students with an intellectual disability and secondary impairments such as hearing, vision, physical and autism spectrum disorders.  We currently provide a service for approximately 250 students in years Prep to twelve.
At Southport Special School we value working in collaboration with families and the local community to ensure we support the unique learning needs of every student in our care. We pride ourselves on having a safe, supportive and least restrictive environment.
Our highly experienced staff support student learning through the implementation of the Australian Curriculum, the use of data to inform teaching and learning and through the provision of a wide variety of pedagogical approaches that meet different learning styles. Staff also work closely with families  to support specific personal care or medical needs.
As a school community we value the importance of every student having fun whilst at school!  
If you would like to find out more about our school please contact us directly or visit our school Facebook page.
