Our Curriculum

Our curriculum is broad and balanced. It is aligned to the national curriculum for both primary and secondary aged pupils but it is also carefully designed to meet the individual needs of our pupils. Our curriculum is embedded into an autistic-friendly environment, and taught by staff with a profound understanding and empathy for the challenges facing many of our pupils.
