The bespoke building was conceived and designed by a parent of a child with autism combined with the views of pupils and the expertise of staff who had observed how the physical environment could impact a child’s ability to learn and develop.
Our school offers a safe, friendly and stimulating environment in which children and young people are supported to learn, interact and have fun.
All the architectural features have an obvious purpose, whether that is to promote order and independent movement from one area to another or to offer predictability to enable the pupils to understand and anticipate the environment around them. A great deal of attention has also been paid to elements such as light, colour and noise which recognises the common challenges of sensory processing.
