Special Education

The DFN Charitable Foundation purchased Undershaw Hotel in Hindhead in September 2014, in order to create a world class special needs school. 
Undershaw is the former residence of the author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and once restored will provide a spacious, bright and positive environment for the students to continue onto the next stages of their education and development.
