Our School

We are a non-maintained special needs school, specialising in a broad and balanced education for children and young people aged between 4 and 19 years old with Autistic Spectrum Conditions.  We are a day school owned by the Disabilities Trust and are well resourced with excellent facilities.  We're located within 14 acres of beautiful grounds in Ascot, which we make good use of to improve students' well-being.  It is a calming environment to help manage anxieties.  Our class sizes are small (max 8 in Secondary).  Students follow a range of pathways, according to their individual needs and take qualifications ranging from ASDAN and Functional Skills through to Level 2 NVQ/BTEC and GCSEs.  Both core and vocational courses are available and students enjoy the opportunity to study business administration, catering and horticulture alongside more traditional subjects.

In summer 2021 we proudly achieved the highly regarded Advanced Autism Accreditation status as well as the Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA) and Wellbeing Award for Schools (WAS).  Our last Ofsted Report in February 2019 concluded that we are a good school with the potential to become outstanding in the near future and this is very much a focus for the whole staff.
