What the school says...
Limpsfield Grange School is an outstanding Surrey County Council provision for girls aged 11 -16 with a wide and diverse range of needs. Our students have communication and interaction difficulties that include Autism, Aspergers and speech language and communication difficulties. We also offer places to girls who due to their physical or emotional vulnerabilities would not have the resilience to succeed in a mainstream setting.
We are a residential school where day places are available.
We at Limpsfield Grange believe that 'together we make a difference.'
We work together to ensure that all students develop their resilience, communication, knowledge, independence, self-esteem, confidence and self-awareness so they can be fully active members of society.
We are ambitious for all of our students, and we work with them to help them succeed.
We provide a bespoke approach based on individual needs that maximises potential including a full and rich 24 hour curriculum accredited through GCSE's and entry level certificates. ...Read more

Time in mainstream taught her ‘the rigour and expectations around progress for mainstream kids.
