Special Education Needs
Freemantles is a local authority day school for pupils with autistic spectrum disorder. We take children mainly from NW and NE of Surrey. We are gradually increasing our age range and will be moving to a new site to accommodate pupils from rising 5-19. We will also have a residential facility for 24 children. We use TEACCH and PECS as well as many other strategies to support the development of our students and have a maximum of 8 students in a group with an average ratio of 1 adult to 2 students.
