Autism and SEMH Schools and Homes - Our Journey
Skip to main content

Kedleston's first school joined us as Wings School Cumbria. Founders Paul and Tony worked with the team there to substantially improve the facilities, many of them designed to nurture the considerable talents of the school’s many very able sportsmen and sportswomen.

We have opened new schools and new homes, and existing schools have joined the group. We now have 16 provisions across England, 12 of which were developed as completely new, bespoke provisions. 


Today, our 600 staff are at the forefront of innovative and exciting teaching and care support. They work alongside highly-skilled clinical teams. Our Governance, Recruitment, HR, Quality and other teams provide a supportive framework for the schools and ensure quality across our group.

More than 500 children are currently educated and cared for by Kedleston. Each is supported to be very much their own person, with their own individual needs met.

We have an enviable reputation for positively challenging children to achieve as much as they can in life. These achievements include school trips, including trekking in Nepal, skiing in Canada and visiting the battle fields of the Somme.

We are always highly ambitious for our children, but know  that achievement is something that is individually measured.

Founder Paul Brosnan continues to lead the organisation and visits schools on a weekly basis, always keen to hear children's ideas for improving schools and homes.

Everyone across Kedleston continues to work with families and placing authorities to create the right solution for a child, aiming to help them achieve the very outcomes.
