“The school is amazing and staff are all lovely and friendly. Would definitely recommend to others.”

“Now this is one facility which we should be shouting a little more about, a school for those young people with higher levels of autism, who can have difficulties in coping in mainstreams.”

“Walking in the door is where I knew I had done the right thing. You forget where you are. The school is small and ideal for children on the spectrum and they even have a dog Edie who is always happy to greet visitors and loves a fuss. She has been a key part in helping my son and even came for the tour with us.”

“Each room is designed with low arousal in mind. No busy over-stimulating walls, quiet areas for the children and individual work stations.”
