Originally opened as a special school for hearing-impaired children back in the mid-1970s, the school began to admit children with autism in the 1980s and is now a regional centre of excellence.[1]

Since Easter 2011 Beverley School has shared a campus with Hollis Academy (formerly Prince Bishop School).[2]

The Headteacher Nigel Carden retired in 2011 and was replaced by Joanne Smith in 2012, following a year where another local special school head teacher stepped in as active head due to the successful candidate for headship accepting the role before later withdrawing at a point where notice periods prevented a suitable replacement being found to begin the next academic year in September 2011.
