Head Teacher Dr Penny Barratt says:

We live in a time of significant advances in our understanding of therapies, education techniques and technology to help children and young people with autism, severe learning difficulties (SLD) and profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD). Unfortunately, these are costly. Our fundraising aims to give our students the best chance in life and to fulfil their true potential through a range of innovative projects. Please help us to achieve this by supporting our work and helping us to raise £1m over the next 2 years.
