About Gretton School
Gretton School is a specialist day and residential school for children and young people with autistic spectrum conditions (ASC), specifically high functioning autism and Asperger’s Syndrome.
The school provides individually tailored programmes of education, care and therapy for students between the ages of 5 and 19 years old.
We value the contribution each child and young person brings to the life of the school and have a philosophy of continuously recognising and reinforcing achievement.
Gretton has a person-centred focus, providing each child with a personalised education and care programme tailored to help meet their unique needs.
High priority is given to providing an appropriate learning environment and curriculum in which creativity, independence and acquisition of learning skills thrive.
Working in close partnership with parents and carers is an essential part of our culture as we recognise that parents know their child best. Parents are always welcome at the school and the experienced, dedicated and well-qualified staff members are always ready to listen, give support and provide reports on each child’s progress.
‘A massive big thank you from the bottom of my heart to all the teachers and staff of the school for giving my grandaughter her life back. Thanks to you she has excelled so much this year and to watch her this afternoon in the production was fantastic. Lots of tears and laughter, well done to all.’- Parent
‘Thank you so much for everything you have done for our son. You gave him belief in himself as a learner and the tools to put it into action. We believe you have changed the course of his life and we will never be able to express the extent of our gratitude to you.’- Parent
