We welcome opportunities and partnerships to achieve our aim of more children and young people with autism accessing high quality education and making outstanding progress. Quality is at the top of the agenda in everything we do, with a focus on meeting the individual needs of every autistic child and young person to succeed in education and prepare for adulthood.

Bidding to open more Special Schools
We are very excited to announce that we have entered Wave 2 of the SEND/AP Free Schools competition. Following the success of The Rise School, we are now looking to open schools for children and young people with autism in Kingston and Reading.
