Purbeck View School is a 38 and 52 week mixed-gender residential school for students aged 7-19 with a diagnosis of autism, or whose difficulties place them on the autistic continuum. Day provision is available for students who live close by.
Our students often have complex needs, learning difficulties associated with autism and challenging behaviour. We believe that children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (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.
We offer access to the National Curriculum using modified or differentiated programmes of study where appropriate. In addition we provide vocational training and further education opportunities. Drawing upon our proven expertise in specialist education and 24-hour care, we focus on the development of personal, social, communication and living skills. Multi-disciplinary teams and high staff ratios ensure intensive individual support.
Admission can take place at any time during the school year.
We support our students through a wide range of clinical and therapeutic inputs including:
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.

Delivering a fulfilling future for our very special children and young people is of paramount importance to us all here at Purbeck View School. I am very proud to now be able to share with you all, the vision that has been created by the staff and I. It articulates everything that we strive for and everything that we aspire to achieve for our youngsters and their families! (Principal Ginny Bellard November 2017)
