What The Good Schools Guide says..
Though first impressions were more suggestive of a Georgian country house than a special school for high functioning ASD boys, in the distance a couple of boys lounged on the lawns and the shouts of a football game could be heard on a hidden Astroturf.

Special Education Needs
Swalcliffe Park School is a non-maintained special school that provides residential education and care for boys aged 11 to 19. All young people referred to the school will have a Statement of Special Educational Needs.

Our main aim and purpose is to provide a child-centred, non-confrontational, caring and supportive, integrated care and educational service for young people whose educational and social welfare needs cannot currently be met within a mainstream school.
