The Forum School is a 38-52 week school for students aged 7-19 with autistic spectrum disorders.
Admission can take place at any time during the school year. Please call us on 01258 860 295 to discuss a placement.
Students have full access to the National Curriculum with teaching appropriately differentiated to meet their needs. In addition, The Forum draws upon a proven programme of specialist education and 24-hour care with a wide range of clinical and therapeutic inputs.
Multi-disciplinary teams and high staffing ratios ensure intensive individual support. In each class, six, or occasionally seven, students benefit from the attentions of a teacher and two teaching assistants
