Headteacher's Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to Heathermount,  a school 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 with autism, dependent upon ability, needs, and interests.

We are determined to create a learning environment which builds confidence and allows for staff and children to flourish. 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.

 All our students access the National Curriculum and all are entered for nationally recognised accreditations which include GCSEs. 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. For some students post 19, we offer Level 2 Work Based Learning Apprenticeships in Hospitality and Catering, Horticulture, Business Administration and Services.

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.

If you would like to arrange a visit or seek further information about Heathermount and the work of The Disabilities Trust please phone the school office on 01344 875101. Julie-Ann, our office administrator, will be happy to make the necessary arrangements.

Thank you for taking the time to browse our website.
