Holbrook School for Autism provides specialist education and care for students with a diagnosis of autism aged 4-19, split over two sites in Holbrook and Belper; there are currently 132 students on roll. We also have a residential facility based at the Holbrook site that provides accommodation for up to 28 students a week, 7 per night, Monday to Thursday term time only.
The main cohort of our students have autism with profound learning difficulties and can present extremely challenging behaviour. The academy practices ‘Team Teach’, a holistic approach to behaviour support and interventions.
In addition to the main school, we also have a provision known as ‘The Hub’, which supports primary aged students with autism who can be working at age-related expectations. These students are currently unable to access mainstream school due to complex needs and behaviours and may have additional mental health needs.
Based in a rural area, Holbrook site has expansive grounds housing specialist climbing equipment for the younger students, trampolines and outdoor gym equipment. It also has access to a wooded area enabling us to provide Forest Schools.
The Belper site accommodates four classes of students aged 14-19. The town location allows for community cohesion, work experience opportunities and has good access links enabling students to participate in travel training.
We provide a personalised curriculum, designed to address the holistic needs of our students. Students have identified differentiation as part of their ‘My Plan’ and individual timetables as appropriate, as well as working on the key skills of literacy, numeracy, and all the national curriculum subjects.
Situated in Derbyshire, most of our students live within the county including a significant number from Derby City. We also accept a small number from
Staffordshire and Nottinghamshire.
