Grateley House School is a residential school for young people aged 9-19 years, who have a diagnosis of Autism or have strong emotional / behavioural traits of the Autistic Spectrum, typically high functioning Austim (Asperger Syndrome).   The school can support young people with other associated difficulties such as ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia.  Secondary mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression and its associated behaviours can also be accommodated when such difficulties occur as part of (but not in place of) an Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC).  All young people in the school will have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) or a Statement of Special Educational Needs (SEN).


Students have access to a broad and balanced curriculum which extends throughout the waking day. A significant part of the learning process is catered for after school, structured activities. We aim to teach self-management through the provision of a range of strategies that allow students to develop their strengths and manage their difficulties successfully.


Bespoke learning programmes for students


Individualised plans are designed to meet students' specific needs, and these plans form the basis of the four-way partnership between the student, school, family and Local Authority. The curriculum is tailored to individual needs and it is supported by Individual Education Plans (IEPs). These plans allow each student to have access to a challenging, broad, relevant and differentiated curriculum that is designed to be Asperger Syndrome friendly.


Our consistent approach provides an atmosphere of predictability and security in which students are able to work, learn and enjoy their leisure time.


The main school building is a large country house set in 8 acres of grounds which provide a beautiful and secure setting for outdoor activities.
