Heathermount has fully taken on board my son and has given him the opportunities, he once didn’t have to be the best he can be. He is absolutely loving being at Heathermount.

Welcome to our website and to our school. I hope the website not only gives you a flavour of the unique provision we offer but also the information you require.
Our school offers individual, bespoke learning packages to children and young people with autism, dependent upon ability, needs, and interests. 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.
At Heathermount 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.
In addition, Heathermount School is set within 14 acres of stunning grounds in Sunningdale, near Ascot. This environment plays an important role for all our students whether in following a Horticulture qualification or providing a calm environment for them to manage any anxieties.
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.
