“Staff are amazing”


This school has been amazing for my grandson. We are kept informed of his progress weekly. Any ups and downs we work together to solve. I could not ask for a better school than Southlands. Tge staff are amazing and my grandson talks non stop about his music teacher who is teaching him how to play the drums. If I need to ask anything, I just email and always get a reply straight away on the same day. This is his first year at Southlands and he's thriving. There us everything he needs at this school from an outdoor swimming pool to a gardening centre and cookery classes . The food he brings home I am amazed by. I woudl recommend this school 100 percent. If anyone has a children with Autism or Aspergers, I would recommend they look at this school. I feel truly blessed that my grandson was accepted.
