About Bitterne Park School

Bitterne Park School is a large community school with a strong tradition of academic achievement. We provide an excellent education for 11-19 year olds set within the Bitterne Park Community. Our core values of Community; Achievement; Relationships and Enjoyment permeate all that we aspire to be.

The Autism Resource Base (ARB) for secondary mainstream students is a city wide funded provision, organised and run by Bitterne Park School. The ARB aims to provide specialist education for students in Southampton who have an Education, Health and Care Plan with a primary need of autism, and who would either find a mainstream school setting too challenging to cope with, or where individual needs would not be appropriately met in a special school.

In September 2021, the ARB will cater for 45 high functioning autistic students across KS3, KS4 and KS5. The provision aims to provide the opportunity for the students to reach their academic potential, whilst developing individual communication and social interaction skills.
