School Description

The school is part of Autism Wessex, a charity that runs a range of support, respite and residential services in Dorset and Hampshire. The school is based on two sites approximately five miles apart. The main site accommodates Key Stages 2, 3 and 4, as well as the most vulnerable students in the sixth form. The sixth form is based in a large house near the centre of Christchurch. There are currently a very small number of pupils under the age of 11. There are no children in the early years. All the pupils have statements of special educational needs. All have autism and have severe, profound, complex and moderate learning difficulties. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium is well below average. The pupil premium is additional government funding provided for disadvantaged children who are looked after or known to be eligible for free school meals. In 2014, there were a very small number of disadvantaged pupils in Year 6 and in Year 11. The school does not receive primary sport funding or Year 7 catch-up funding. The school does not use any alternative provision.
