A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School


School Description

Gretton is an independent day and residential special school for girls and boys with autism, specifically for high-functioning autism and those with Asperger’s syndrome. All pupils have an education, health and care plan or a statement of special educational needs, and are funded by their local authority. The school, which is part of the Cavendish Education Limited, opened in January 2010. It was initially registered for up to 60 pupils aged from five to 19 years with provision for up to eight residential placements. The school received a material change inspection on 26 January 2015 in response to its request to the Department for Education to increase the number of day pupils to 96. There are currently 95 pupils on roll, including 11 learners in the sixth form. There are no pupils at key stage 1. There are 21 pupils in receipt of pupil premium funding, including the pupils who are looked after by their local authority. The school does not use any alternative provision. The school provides residential care for eight pupils for four nights per week. The school’s residential provision was previously inspected on 16 November 2015 when the overall experiences and progress of children and young people was judged as good. The leadership team has been reorganised since the previous inspection. The headteacher is now the part-time principal. The deputy headteacher was appointed as substantive headteacher in September 2016. The replacement deputy headteacher, head of compliance and assistant headteachers were appointed in September 2016 and an interim head of care is in post. Approximately one third of the staff are new since the previous inspection and there have been three changes of teachers in Year 10 since the beginning of the autumn term.
