Lime Academy Hornbeam is a special school providing for pupils aged 2-19 on two sites in the London Borough of Waltham Forest. Learners working at the earliest levels of cognition are based at the Brookfield House site and learners accessing an adapted national curriculum are based at the William Morris site. Hornbeam is commissioned for 285 learners. Hornbeam joined the Lime Trust in September 2019.

“We believe that all our young people should have the opportunity to achieve their maximum potential; to develop academically and socially to the best of their ability. We offer a broad, balanced and personalised curriculum, including opportunities for personal and social growth and development. Our aim is to equip our young people to become the socially and economically independent adults they aspire to be”
