Statement of Purpose

To enable out students to be happy and active we have created a curriculum underpinned by our three areas for development:

  • Learning
  • Growing
  • Achieving

We offer a specialist curriculum that recognises each young person diagnosed on the autistic spectrum as an individual, and we work to help them realise their full potential. Our structured environment and high levels of targeted intervention and differentiation support our students with autism, Asperger’s and associated difficulties to acquire strategies for life and learning, which in the long term will give them the opportunities and skills for successful employment.

Our schools are friendly, supportive environments where attendance is high and mutual respect thrives addressing the Social and Emotional Wellbeing of every young person in school.

We achieve this through the following learning methods:

  • Wellbeing and Therapies - focuses on healthy eating, exercise, relaxation techniques, emotional regulation and helping students develop strategies for managing times of increased anxiety.  Therapies are integrated across the curriculum, with the therapy team working with students to develop their independence and life skills both on and off-site
  • Learning – we offer our students an adapted curriculum that recognises the individuality of young people with autism.  A range of academic and vocational courses are offered in a vibrant and stimulating environment where staff help students make connections between their learning and how this can be applied to everyday situations.  Alongside the formal curriculum, we support students to build resilience in preparation for life in the modern world.
  • Growing – we aim to provide our students with a ‘tool box for life’ – a variety of qualifications, skills and coping mechanisms that they can take with them for the future.  Our approach enables students to be in charge of their learning, in control of their feelings and emotions and responsible for their actions, enabling them to grow into caring, confident citizens.
  • Achieving – we work closely with local colleges, schools, alternative education providers and the local community to ensure there is a breadth of qualifications and experiences on offer for the students.  We aim to prepare young people with autism for life in the workplace so that when they leave us they have the skills and knowledge to get a job and sustain work.
