Pioneer School in Basildon, Essex, is a specialist school aimed at providing pupils with severe learning and physical disabilities with a range of facilities that will enable them to prepare for independence in adult life.

Formerly two separate special needs schools – Elmbrook School and Moat House School – the schools amalgamated to form Pioneer School based on the existing two campuses of Elmbrook and Moat House. The school then moved to new, purpose built premises on its current site and Pioneer became an academy in June 2012
