Hillingdon Manor School is an independent special school for children and young people with autism between 3 to 19 years of age. The School strives to provide effective, specialist education and support to pupils with autism, allowing pupils to achieve their full potential both in and outside of school.
Located over two sites for primary and secondary, the school offers a unique mix of education and support to pupils with a wide spectrum of needs and abilities. Personalised teaching and learning in an autism specific environment allows pupils' individual needs to be addressed completely and their capabilities fully realised.
At Hillingdon Manor School, we aim to provide a broad and balanced education for all of the people that we support within a happy, stimulating and healthy environment and we want each child to achieve the best they can.
The National Curriculum is tailored to the individual needs of the pupil through the use of the Equals schemes of work and is supported through a communication-centred environment.
"Students enter the school at various ages, frequently following difficult experiences of education and with negative feelings about school. Leaders enable almost all students to achieve well as they progress through the school." (Ofsted)
We value the importance of celebrating achievement to build children's self-esteem. Our Weekly Star of the Week assemblies are used formally to celebrate pupil's achievements both inside and outside of school. Parents are welcome to join us in our sharing Assemblies throughout the year. Hillingdon Manor School is also home to the Autism with Attitude street dance group. The group, which includes students from the school, made history in July 2017 when they qualified as the first special needs dance team to make it through to the finals of the United Dance Organisations (UDO) Championships.
We are proud of our school and the staff work extremely hard to make learning fun and exciting for all our pupils. We feel privileged to lead an enthusiastic and committed team; and firmly believe that when young people move on from our school they have the necessary skills and coping strategies to succeed regardless of individual needs.
