Autism and SEMH Specialist School in Sefton, Liverpool
Skip to main content

We are an independent specialist day school situated in the heart of the community in Sefton with excellent travel links across Merseyside.

The building is bright and welcoming with a variety of different learning spaces indoors and outdoors.Children and young people from diverse backgrounds come to the school because they cannot continue in mainstream education for various reasons.

Our school provides a safe learning environment for pupils with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) with associated needs including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism (ASC) and moderate and specific learning difficulties (LD).  

The school aims to prepare children and young people for the future through a modern curriculum that meets their individual needs and provides a nurturing environment where every young person is valued and supported.

There is also a specific part of the school, called the Olsen House Bluebird Unit which supports young people who may have a primary diagnosis of autism.
