Special Education Needs

We are a specialist independent day and residential school for children aged 4-19 with an autistic spectrum disorder, who hold a statement of special educational need. Our school is particularly appropriate for children and young people who require a co-ordinated and consistent programme of education and care. The school offers day, 38 week and 52 week provision in an attractive, rural setting of 30 acres of parkland. We are situated on the edge of a small village yet within easy reach of two larger towns. Our school is designed to resemble a village community, in harmony with the South Norfolk landscape. Our children enjoy the space and freedom of a peaceful school environment.
