Other additional needs which may include ASD, ADHD, Sensory issues or Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs. Classes have up to 7 pupils and will are supported by HLTAs, TAs and Therapists. The school opened its Secondary Centre in September 2019 in purpose built accommodation co-located with Clarendon School and Richmond upon Thames School.

Our Primary Centre opened in September 2021 co-located with St Mary's primary school in Twickenham. The Auriga Academy Trust was created in 2016 by our partner special schools Clarendon and Strathmore, in order to extend local SEND provision.
