About Brantridge School
Who We Are
RADIUS Trust (formerly Grafham Grange Special Educational Trust (GGSET)) was founded in 1994 and is a charity operating three non-maintained residential special schools in Surrey and West Sussex.
RADIUS currently employs over 170 staff comprising of a team of Education, Care & Support staff in each school and the Trust office staff.
Brantridge and Grafham Grange Schools provide high quality education and care for vulnerable young boys with Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties (SEMH) and/or Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). St Dominic’s School specialises in providing high quality education and care for boys and girls with Autism and/or Specific Learning Difficulties including Speech & Language Disorders.
All pupils have a statement of special educational needs which forms the basis of their home Local Authority’s decision to place them in one of the Trust’s schools. The majority have specific additional needs too, such as those associated with autism. A small number are in the care of the state and are formally looked after children. There is a particularly strong and highly valued Post 16 offering at St Dominic’s School.
Brantridge School occupies an impressive set of buildings, built in the English Country House tradition, set in the Sussex Weald, an area of outstanding natural beauty.
The school offers provision for up to 41 vulnerable young boys with Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties (SEMH) and/or Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) from the age of 6 to 13 years, 36 of which are residential places (weekly boarding).
The Trust Board is currently made up of eleven Trustees with a commitment to rise to thirteen. Read more about our trustees here.
Trust Management & Leadership
The Trust management is headed by a Chief Executive supported by a Trust Executive Team, which works closely with the Headteachers/Principal of the schools.
