LVS Oxford is an SEN school providing a unique, positive education for young people on the autism spectrum aged 11 to 19.
A bespoke curriculum includes therapy and academic interventions, helping students make fantastic progress with their academic achievements. Crucially, we also see their self-confidence grow as they build up the life skills that will equip them for the future, including moving on to college, employment or assisted employment.
To enable our students to be happy and active we have created a curriculum underpinned by our three areas for development: Learning, Growing, Achieving.
At LVS Oxford, our students learn a range of relevant academic and vocational skills in a vibrant and stimulating environment. We help the learning process by focusing on their emotional wellbeing and physical health, as well as ensuring they develop the skills to manage stress and anxiety.
Pupils are supported by excellent pastoral care and we encourage independence, well-being and healthy lifestyles with students learning life skills outside of the classroom in a safe and secure environment. Students can access a range of vocational qualifications in areas such as ICT, cookery, furniture restoration, health and social care, and business. We aim to provide our students with a 'tool box for life' - a variety of qualifications, skills and coping mechanisms that they can take with them for the future.
Students work towards a variety of academic qualifications - A Levels, GCSEs, Entry level qualifications and BTECs. Exam results in 2018 included an 8 (high A grade) in English language to maintain the school's 100% A*–C record in the subject since it began offering GCSEs in 2016. For the second consecutive year pupils achieved 100% attainment in all BTEC courses.
We also aim to prepare young people with autism for life in the workplace so that when they leave us they have the skills and knowledge to get a job and sustain work. Our students are given the opportunity to engage in work-based training providing experience in their chosen area.
Whilst we have a criteria and policy for admissions, we also recommend you contact us to discuss the individual’s needs, or attend one of our open days.
