Special Needs


Gretton School welcomes autistic children and young people aged from 5-19 years old, as weekly boarders or as day students. Every student at Gretton has a diagnosis of autism and every student is different.

As autism specialists, we understand that consistent daily routines and staffing helps to keep anxiety at a minimum and ensures that our students feel safe and confident in their surroundings.

We have a high staff to student ratio and classes are small and personal - we know each of our students really well and employ the best strategies to support them in their everyday school life.

A broad curriculum, an emphasis on holistic development, and the development of life and social skills, means that we are able to bring out the best in all our students, and to provide them with opportunities to flourish.

At whatever stage your child joins Gretton, we will ensure they are happy and prepared to make the most of the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.

Gretton School is part of Newcome Education. A subsidiary of Cavendish Education.
