All students have significant disabilities, with many having Down's syndrome and half having autism. The school also caters for pupils with extremely rare disorders (one of whom is one of only two in the world with that diagnosis).
Collett’s mission is to promote the abilities in disability within the immediate, local and wider communities.
Collett School is one of the lowest funded schools in the county despite the fact that it caters for children with complex needs and significant disabilities.
The Tudors took on a special twist to “Movember” by growing facial hair and raising £1,000 for Collett.

It is not just the money; it is the recognition by the football club – at the heart of the community – of what Stephen and the amazing staff at the school do for these very special children.”
