Firpark School is a non-denominational school situated at the upper end of the town of Motherwell, close to Civic Centre, Motherwell Football Club and New College Lanarkshire, Motherwell Campus. It is within walking distance of the main shopping precinct and has good transport links.
The school was purpose built in 1977 to accommodate pupils with additional support needs. It has good access facilities for persons with mobility needs and all the rooms are situated at ground level.
The school has been installed with a security entrance system and perimeter fencing. Within our school building there are three teaching blocks, medical suite, technical, art, and home economic rooms, computer suite, P.E. hall, swimming pool, physiotherapy gym, hair and beauty room, bistro and polytunnels.
At present there are 145 children on our roll (age range from 12-18 years) who are mainly drawn from a catchment area within North Lanarkshire with a small percentage of children from South Lanarkshire.
The children are transported to school either by local authority buses or taxis. Some of our senior pupils travel independently to school, often on public transport. There is input from specialist services – speech and language therapy, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, school medical officer, psychological services and hearing and visual impairment specialists.
Within Firpark much attention is focused on the local community and pupils throughout the school participate in a wide range of out of school activities. We use our two school mini-buses to enable our pupils to access the local and wider community. We have supportive Parent Forum.
