School Description

LVS Oxford is an 11 to 19 co-educational independent school, catering for pupils who have a diagnosis of autism spectrum conditions. The school was registered in June 2014 and opened in September 2014. The school is located in a former priory north of Oxford. Most pupils admitted to the school have a diagnosis of a high functioning autistic condition or of Asperger’s syndrome. Some pupils have associated additional special Inspection report: LVS Oxford, 14–17 May 2018 Page 9 of 12 educational needs and/or disabilities. Nearly all pupils have education, health and care plans (EHC plans). A number of local authorities place pupils at the school. A very small number of pupils are privately funded. The school was inspected for the first time in May 2015. In March 2017, the Department for Education approved a material change for the school, enabling it to cater for up to 98 pupils. A very small number of pupils are eligible for the pupil premium, although some local authorities retain the funding. The school does not use any alternative provision. Some sixth-form students attend Abingdon and Witney College as part of their programmes of study. The current headteacher joined the school in 2015, shortly after the last full inspection. The school aims to enable all pupils to become: ‘successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve; confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives; responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to modern British society.’ The school does not have any religious affiliation.
