New Elizabeth School

Cambian New Elizabethan School is a day school that offers outstanding opportunities  for boys and girls with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder, communication difficulties, complex needs and challenging behaviour.


Set in large, private grounds amid a campus of historic buildings in rural Hartlebury, Worchestershire, the School is a relaxing place of learning, where young people receive the specialist education and multi-disciplinary care they need.


By offering a staff-to-pupil ratio of 1:4 and 1:1, Cambian New Elizabethan School is able to offer children a supportive and relaxing environment where they can learn and achieve their personal best.


At Cambian New Elizabethan School, each child receives an individualised education programme, which is tailored to meet their specific needs and is supported by a multi-disciplinary team that includes psychology, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, specialist teachers and support staff.


The school day is organised to provide for both individual and group work for academic, personal and social skills to be developed. Full use is made of the resources of the local environment, with educational programmes taking individuals into the community for practical activities such as shopping, swimming, horse riding, interacting with people in the community, library visits and country walks.


Many of the school's services focus on anxiety reduction and improving communcation skills through speech and language therapy. Post-16 services are available at local colleges, with support from the school.
