The Grove is a brand new special school for young people with autism, opened in September 2018. As our school moves into its second year, we transfer to our newly refurbished site near Turnpike Lane and expand our intake of pupils.

We are opening, in September, two new KS3 classes for 8 academically able autistic pupils. We will provide an alternative to mainstream education for these youngsters who, for many reasons, have not been successful in the mainstream setting.
This provision will expand to include KS2 and KS4 pupils reaching a capacity of 16-20 pupils over two years.

The school, which is currently based on a split site has 45 students on roll with complex autism across primary, secondary and post 16. The addition of a new department will create 4 distinct departments as we grow to full capacity of 104 by 2021, 88 of those places for young people with complex autism between the ages of 5-19 and 16 places for those who are academically able between the ages of 7-16.
