About Our School

Headteacher's Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to Heathermount. We are a non-maintained special day school, owned by the Disabilities Trust, set within 14 acres of stunning grounds in Sunningdale near Ascot. At Heathermount we cherish all of our students and ensure that provision is tailored to meet individual need. We offer learning packages to children and young people aged between 4 and 19 with a diagnosis of ASC, dependent upon ability, needs, and interests.

All staff have high expectations for students and are very proud of the amazing progress every student makes once they are secure, settled and understood. We are determined to create a learning environment which builds confidence and allows for staff and children to flourish. All our students access the National Curriculum with a view to enter for nationally recognised accreditations which include GCSEs and Functional Skills. Running in tandem with the National Curriculum, we offer a range of vocational qualifications which include Skills for Working Life, Personal Learning, Thinking Skills and work experience opportunities.

All students are helped to become independent, confident young adults who are able to leave school and enter the world of further education or employment. No student has left Heathermount and become a government statistic for Not in Employment, Education or Training. All have either progressed to colleges of further education or into the world of work.

We are privileged to have small teaching groups and a dedicated team of teaching and therapeutic staff who work relentlessly to find solutions to any barriers that might hinder learning. Heathermount is a wonderful place for children to thrive and I would encourage you to visit and explore for yourself.
