Service Details

Additional Information
Headteacher - Paul Kniveton. Our students often have complex needs, learning difficulties associated with autism and challenging behaviour. The schools location in the seaside town of Swanage ensures that integration into the community is a part of daily life. Students have access to all the local amenities, the beautiful Purbeck Hills and coastline trails. Admission can take place at any time during the school year. We believe that children with ASD do not progress and develop if left alone. Only with consistent, appropriate intervention will they learn the skills necessary to achieve their potential in later life.
Age Range
