What says..

Is your engine running too fast or too slow? the pupils are asked at times of stress. The school is focused on the underlying characteristics of autism and alert to anything that threatens the children’s sense of well-being. The popular music teacher offers sessions on guitar, bass, drums and vocals and we witnessed a burst of ear-splitting keyboards, jamming to a Green Day video in one of his classes.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

What The Good Schools Guide says

Head of education

Since April 2017, Maggie Carey. Masters level qualifications in English and SEN. Began her career in mainstream but very quickly moved into SEN teaching as the co-ordinator of an SEN unit in a mainstream school.

Special Education Needs

We are an independent co-educational day school providing specialised education for up to 90 pupils aged 11 to 19 years with an autism spectrum disorder, autism, Asperger syndrome and associated social and communication difficulties. At Eagle House School (Sutton) we aim to be much more than just a school. Our specialist teaching offers an unique approach to working with learners with autism and Asperger syndrome. We believe we develop the global needs of our children, not just their education. Our children and young people are supported by an experienced, well trained multidisciplinary staff team supported in the classroom by psychologists, occupational therapists and speech & language therapists. We use the Eagle House approach to autism which involves designing our intervention models using the Ziggurat approach, structured teaching (the TEACCH approach) and positive behaviour support.
