Mary Rose School is a 2-19 community special school in Portsmouth, Hampshire, England that opened in February 2007 and educates 110 pupils.[1] The opening of the school, due for September 2006, was delayed by design and construction issues.[2][3] The school takes children with a wide range of severe and complex learning needs. Mary Rose has been awarded specialist Sports College status.[4]

Wheelchair basketball player and Paralympic broadcaster Ade Adepitan formally opened the school in 2007 and officially opened its specialist sports college status in October 2008.[4]

Many of the school's pupils have physical disabilities and health issues. Headteacher Alison Beane has stated that "Sport, wellbeing and fitness all go together to help move [pupils with disabilities or health issues] forward, to develop their physical skills" and noted sport is a great motivating element. The school also co-operates with Priory School in Southsea, which promotes excellence in physical education and community sport.[4]

Achieving sports college status means that after the school raised £20,000, the government provided £100,000 in capital build funding to develop "The Studio", a room for dance, gymnastics, fitness work including sensory integration with sound, lighting, and space. In addition, the school will receive £60,000 a year over the following four years toward staffing and community partnership enhancements.[4]

In the report of their November 2007 inspection, Ofsted gave the school an overall assessment of Good, point two on a four point scale. However, both the Foundation Stage and the sixth form were assessed as Outstanding.[5]
