A structured, consistent and nurturing approach for young people with high functioning autism.
In light of the recent Government guidance relating to school closures as a result of the preventative strategy for containing the spread of the Coronavirus, you will be aware the government wishes those schools working with children and young people with EHCP`s and/or children with social workers, to try and remain open.
As we now reach the Easter holiday break, we can confirm that all of the schools remain open both to support any children who continue to require access to school, specifically where parents have identified themselves as ‘key workers’ and to new referrals.

I had been looking for schools that could meet my son’s needs and I was starting to wonder...
“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.”
