➜ Cambian New Elizabethan School Prospectus (Under Review)


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, Worcestershire, 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 1:2 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.


Individual learning programmes


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 therapy team that includes psychology, occupational therapy, specialist speech and language therapy, mental health practitioner, therapy assistant and family support worker who work in conjunction with the teaching assistants and qualified teachers.


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, animal care study (equine therapy), interacting with people in the community, library visits and country walks.


Many of the school's services focus on anxiety reduction and improving communication skills through all of our therapists on site. Post-16 services are available on-site as well as linking with local colleges should this be required.
