The 228 independent schools catering wholly or mainly for pupils with special educational needs which opened between 1 September 2005 and 31 August 2008 are listed.

The Education Act 2002 amended the definition of an independent school to include institutions providing full-time education for one or more pupils with a statement of special educational needs or a looked-after child. This resulted in a number of children's homes which provide education on the premises registering as independent schools.
