The After Care School provided schooling for children receiving outpatient care at Wingfield House or living in the Mental Defectives Home, both of which were on the St John's site. It also accepted children who had been referred by other schools. In 1957, there were 14 children at the School, half of whom received treatment at Wingfield.
It seems likely that the children at the After Care School transferred to Wingfield School in 1957, when new classrooms were built for it nearer to Wingfield House.
